Yahoo API

Neat. Yahoo! give us an API to programmatically play with their data. Google did this a good while ago, but Yahoo! have gone one better with 5000 queries a day (as opposed to 1000) and lets us get at Image, Local, News, Video & Web Search. With it all they have launched a Yahoo! Search Developer Network, Web Services Weblog which is kicked off with a post from Jeremy Z. JZ also posts some meta links on his own site. John Batelle covers it too. Haha, I just noticed, they have a Wiki too. Where's the podcasting and the folksonomy JZ?

Yahoo! is ten tomorrow, I guess this is their birthday present to developers. Yay.
