Yahoo! Pipes

Yahoo! Pipes: Unlocking the Data Web

For far too long now RSS has been used in ways that don’t really tap its true potential. Being able to syndicate my favorite headlines or blog posts is great. In fact, it helped to kick off a revolution in personal on-line publishing that is still growing and evolving.

Pipes? Whata those Yahoos smoking?

Yahoo! Pipes is a hosted service that lets you remix feeds and create new data mashups in a visual programming environment. The name of the service pays tribute to Unix pipes, which let programmers do astonishingly clever things by making it easy to chain simple utilities together on the command line.
