Yahoo! APIs 'could reduce peanut butter effect'

Licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution License. Please give credit as James Duncan Davidson/O'Reilly Media. Gifting its underlying infrastructure to web users could help focus a flailing Yahoo!, according to one of the portal's lead developers.

According to an internal memo, aimed at counteracting its listing fortunes but leaked this weekend, company senior vice president Brad Garlinghouse likened the search giant's one-stop shop approach to "peanut butter" - "a thin layer of investment spread across everything we do and thus we focus on nothing in particular".

Internet startup Travelistic.com - which aims to be the YouTube for travellers - launched yesterday, headed up by one-time CEO and president of MTVi. 

Travelistic launches 'YouTube for travellers'

Travelistic combines user-generated video with professionally produced programming, some of which is exclusive. The self-funded company itself plans to move into content creation, with a travel-themed 'video podcast' in the offing.

The revenue model of user generated content?

Let’s face it shall we - no one creates something and then gives it away for free, expecting no return...

I mean, as much as we’d like to do stuff and give it away for free, in the interests of making the world a better place, the unfortunate reality is that we all have to earn our crust somehow, and if we throw our eggs into the user generated content basket, then you have to ask what the hell your revenue model is going to be?


Will Yahoo mash-ups save us from Hotmail?

Yahoo’s decision to open up its email API is great news for web mail users and is a great example of what Web 2.0 is about. How long will it be before a major retailer like Tesco follows suit?


Yahoo! aims to foster Mail mash-ups

The move, which will happen later this year, was announced as part of a ‘Yahoo! Hack Day’ aimed at helping programmers to build apps using the portal’s various services.

One of the pleasant not-so surprises on returning was the recent launch of a UK TechCrunch site which is focused on UK Web 2.0 and mobile startups.
