Yahoo Pipes

by Erica Sadun

If you haven't gone over to play with the new Yahoo!Pipes yet, you just might want to give it a try. It's kind of like a Quartz Composer/Tinker Toy-inspired layout system for information and it's tons of fun. Pipes allow you to collect and filter information to create custom information feeds.

To get started, visit Yahoo Pipes via Firefox. (Pipes works a lot better with Firefox than Safari.) Click "create a new pipe" and log into your Yahoo account.

Wow. Seriously fun. Looks like Google doesn't hold the patent on cool web apps.

Very interesting stuff, take a look at this site http://luddites-or-laggards.blogspot.com/2007/02/blogged-pipes-are-they-something-to.html and let us know do you think that it is disruptive technology?

Pipes is even more powerful now when has the reg exp operator. I'm reading this tutorial ( http://theytookmystapler.blogspot.com/2007/09/yahoo-pipes-case-study-of-using-regex.html ) on it, I will use Pipes with the reg exp operator to change the titles of my Flickr pictures.
