ResearchBuzz: Yahoo Announces Yahoo Labs
"Yahoo on Monday announced Yahoo Research Labs at http://labs.yahoo.com, describing it as " a research organization focused on inventing new technologies and solutions relevant to strategic Yahoo! businesses. The group will pursue a portfolio of topics that include pay for performance search, web search, vertical businesses and platform technologies." [...] The first thing it lacks is some kind of API or at least guidelines on how programmers might use Yahoo data (since Yahoo is a searchable subject index, and is divided into categories, you could do some really fun stuff with the search data.) There needs to be more communication between Yahoo users and Yahoo."
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
