Yahoo has released today a new service called Pipes.
If you’re a Dapper user, think of it as a very nifty and visually appealing version of our Dapp linking feature, only today focused around RSS feeds. If you’re a Mac user, think of it as web based Automator. There’s some cool JS mojo in the works there. Really nice. Wish we had such an interface for the linking feature. Kudos to Bradley and the team for making it happen.
Naturally, many people writing about it have mentioned Dapper. It is a good complementary fit, and we’ll see how things unfold with pipes as it transforms from a cool project to show Yahoo still got it into a somewhat more strategic play.
All in all, it’s exciting times to be in this space.
