I remember when Yahoo was having a new renaissance in Web 2.0 days. Yahoo Pipes!. Open data sharing. Oh, it was brilliant. They had fantastic AI and data aggregation, all for free… all easy to use…. I made some really complicated Pipes that worked PERFECTLY for _years_… stuff I put together in 2007 was still running in 2013… every day, every few hours, clockwork. Beautiful. But they tried to monetize it. Bound to fail. It failed. Yahoo made a number of blunders through the years, and it was usually along those lines. Have something that’s strong then destroy it somehow. Still, I’ll miss you being around.
