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 and Filters for the Internet  —  Yahoo!'s new Pipes service is a milestone in the history of the internet.  It's a service that generalizes the idea of the mashup, providing a drag and drop editor that allows you to connect internet data sources, process them, and redirect the output.
