+      <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>The first time I used Flickr, I knew it
was something <em>different</em> and something <em>important</em>.
 It took me a while to figure out and try to articulate exactly what that was, but I took
my first swipe back in September when I called it a <a href="http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/archives/002526.html">Next
Generation Web Service</a>.  In that posting, I said:</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+
+<p>Flickr has been on my radar for a while now, but I only recently began to start
playing with it.  I'm impressed as hell.  After my first 10 minutes of playing with it, I
found myself thinking "why don't we build stuff like this at Yahoo?"  In other words, I realized
that we could probably learn <em>a lot</em> from this when it comes to building
next generation applications at Yahoo.  (Whether or not we do is a whole separate topic of
discussion.)</p>
+
+<p>Flickr has the potential to set the new standard for on-line photo sharing, management,
etc.  Why?  Because Flickr...</p>
+
+<ul>
+
+<li>does one thing and does it well</li>
+
+<li>provides a clean and simple UI</li>
+
+<li>has clear and helpful documentation</li>
+
+<li>exposes core functionality with a <a href="http://www.flickr.com/services/api/">documented
API</a></li>
+
+<li>account sign up is brain-dead simple</li>
+
+<li>makes extensive and intuitive use of RSS</li>
+
+<li>like <a href="http://del.icio.us/">del.icio.us</a>, uses tags to help
organize</li>
+
+<li>doens't spam me with graphical/animated/flash ads or try to unexpectedly pop up
<em>any</em> sort of window</li>
+
+</ul>
+
+<p>In other words, it's developer friendly, user friendly, and is a web site as well
as a "service" or "platform" (in the <a href="http://www.web2con.com/">Web 2.0</a>
sense) all at the same time.</p>
+
+</blockquote>
+
+<p>It was around that time that I jokingly responded to every mention of Flickr at
the office with "you know, we should buy them..."  And I was only half joking.</p>
+
+<p>Be careful what you wish for, right? :-)</p>
+
+<p>Since then a lot has happened and I've had the chance to meet the Flickr team a
few times.  That has only convinced me even more that they have what it takes to really change
things.  Combining their mix of tagging, communities, syndication, open APIs, and interactive
UI with Yahoo's services and millions of users will lead to even more great stuff.</p>
+
+<p>As Caterina <a href="http://blog.flickr.com/flickrblog/2005/03/yahoo_actually_.html">wrote</a>,
this isn't about just throwing millions of users at Flickr or bolting Flickr onto Yahoo! Photos.
 Think more deeply about it.  There are many parts of Yahoo that will be Flickrized in the
coming months.  And with more resources available, Flickr itself will be able to grow like
never before.</p>
+
+<p>Personally, I can't wait.  I've been really excited by the potential here for a
while now.  And I don't mean the sort of "excited" people say when they're expected to say
it.  If only you could ask the people around here that I've been taking to in recent weeks.</p>
+
+<p>It's such a relief to be able to talk openly about this.  There's obviously more
good stuff in the works.  For starters, just think about how we could Flickrize <a href="http://360.yahoo.com/">Yahoo!
360</a> (and it's not even out yet!).  Oh, and I can finally stop pretending I don't
know what my friends are talking about when they ask if there's something going on between
the two companies!</p>
+
+<p>Sorry, <a href="http://www.bladam.com/archives/0412190006.htm">Adam</a>.
 You guessed wrong on this one.</p>
+
+<h4>To the Flickr Team</h4>
+
+<p>Congrats and welcome to the Yahoo family.  It's a big one but you're going to be
a very big part of it.  You have a lot of fans here--probably even more after today. :-)</p>
+
+<p>The next few months are probably going to be crazy.  But if any of you have questions
about Yahoo or just want to grab lunch at URL's, give me a call/email/IM.  I'll do anything
I can to help.</p>
+
+<p>You guys rock.</p>

at ETech and stuff back at Yahoo that I haven't had a chance to even post here.  You probably
heard about Yahoo! 360 (our answer to what happens when you combine your friends, your content
(pictures, lists, reviews, etc), and a bit of blogging fu).  I'll write more about it later,
probably but am happy to see that <a href="http://www.yeald.com/Yeald/a/34521/article.html">some
people</a> "get it."</p>
+
+<p>360 was not designed to be YASNS (Yet Another Social Networking Service).  The goal
is not to amass as many "friends" as possible, unlike Friendster, Orkut, and others.  It's
about making it easier to share stuff with people who <em>really are</em> you
friends--tne ones you already talk to, email, IM, etc.</p>
+
+<p>ETech has been great.  I even got to ask Jeff Bezos about his space investments
a couple hours ago.  What's really cool is that he comes to a conference like ETech and says
around to just check out what's going on an talk to people.  He doesn't fly back to Seattle
as soon as his talk is done or blow people off.  He's right at home among the geeks here.</p>
+
+<p>Speaking of Amazon, Udi Manber of a9.com told me he's heading to Tuscon for PC Forum
after this.  He's taking the gps and camera equipment with him so that he can drive the streets
and get more pictures for their sidewalk view of the area.  We also got to chat a bit about
the <a href="http://opensearch.a9.com/">Open Search</a> via RSS concept that Jeff
demonstrated yesterday.</p>
+
+<p>So much cool stuff, so little time.</p>
+
+<p>Also, while I'm doing an ETech inspired braindump of sorts, here's a mini-linkdump
too:</p>

Transparensee</a>, John Battelle said the following:</p>
+
+<blockquote>

+
+<p>He's referring to <a href="http://transparensee.com/">Transparensee</a>'s
<a href="http://transparensee.com/products/">Discovery Search Engine</a>.  He
did a decent job of explaining what it is, but it's really one of those "you really have to
try it before you'll get it" technologies.</p>
+
+<p>Luckily Steve Lavine (the founder and CEO of Transparensee Systems) walked me through
a few demos some time ago.  As their site indicates, the technology can be applied to a variety
of "vertical search" markets:</p>
+
+<ul>
+
+<li>real estate</li>
+<li>dating</li>
+<li>restaurants</li>
+<li>many types of shopping and product comparison</li>
+
+</ul>
+
+<p>It's pretty cool stuff.  I expect that we'll see a lot more of this in the coming
months.  Searching structured databases really shouldn't be any harder than searching the
web, but it often is.  The "fuzzy" searching capabilities their technology adds does a good
job of closing that gap.</p>
+
+<p>The more I think about it, I realize that this is the perfect case of a product
that could benefit from a <a href="http://weblog.infoworld.com/udell/2005/02/21.html#a1182">screencast</a>.
 I'll mention that to Steve.</p>]]></content:encoded>

wanted to "pull a Netscape" on Google, would you merely attack them in the algorithmic search
market?  Or would you go after the <em>real money</em> too?</p>
+
+<p>To quote their filing from last year:</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+We derive most of our revenues from fees we receive from our advertisers.
+</blockquote>
+
+<p>Luckily, they haven't forgotten their roots:</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+Our original business model consisted of licensing our search engine services to other web
sites. In the first quarter of 2000, we introduced our first advertising program...

+      <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>It seems that the portalization of Google
comes up now and then.  I just ran across a <a href="http://www.technosailor.com/google-news-customization">this
quote</a> on <a href="http://www.technosailor.com/">Technosailor</a>:</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+It seems Google is trying to experiment with elements of portal sites like My Yahoo! but

that it doesn&rsquo;t like. I&rsquo;m not so sure you can be on both sides of the
fence.
+</blockquote>
+
+<p>Yeah, I'd agree with that.  You can't be on the fence and Google is headed to portaldom.
 But I think people are focusing on the wrong question, really.  The question they should
be asking is this:</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+What will the next generation portal look like?
+</blockquote>
+
+<p>If their current products are any indication, most things fit into a "one box" view
of the world.  By that I mean that each of their major properties have an obvious text input
box and one or two buttons.  The interaction is in one of two modes:</p>
+
+<ol>
+
+<li>Type into the box and hit the button.  Look at results.</li>
+
+<li>Use other navigation to browse.  Repeat.</li>
+
+</ol>
+
+<p>It seems that Froogle, Logal/Maps, and Search (Web, Image, <strike>Transcript</strike>
Video) are clearly in mode #1.  While Mail and Groups are unevenly split between #1 and #2.
 That's not terribly surprising, since those two are more about communication and interaction.</p>
+
+<p>In other words, you may or may not begin by "searching" but will likely end up navigating
content that may have ads nearby.  But I suspect that 95% or more of their current "sessions"
begin with a search of some sort.  After all, Google is a <strike>advertising</strike>
search company.</p>
+
+<p>I'm not convinced that the "one box" view of the world is going to be the primary
mode of interaction over the next few years.  Are you?</p>]]></content:encoded>

+<p>Isn't that like having a version of <a href="http://my.yahoo.com/">My Yahoo!</a>
that just forgets your settings every time you use a new computer?  That would really suck.</p>
+
+<p>Other than showing off some DHTML stuff, what's the deal with offering customization
without a way of making my settings really persistent?</p>
+
+<p>If I'm missing the magic "login" link, please tell me where to look.</p>

+      <description>As with last time and the time before, last night&apos;s 106
Miles gathering was excellent. Who is Jeff Winner? As the site said: Jeff Winner is a principal
in venture accelerator Alacrity Partners. He was most recently VP of engineering at Friendster,
leading the well-known scaling and performance rewrite. Previous posts include Demandtec,
eGroups, Netscape, Collabra, and Verity. In other words, he&apos;s been around the block

time before</a>, last night's <a href="http://106miles.org/">106 Miles</a>
gathering was excellent.</p>
+
+<p>Who is Jeff Winner?  As the site said:</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+
+Jeff Winner is a principal in venture accelerator Alacrity Partners. He was most recently
VP of engineering at Friendster, leading the well-known scaling and performance rewrite. Previous
posts include Demandtec, eGroups, Netscape, Collabra, and Verity.
+
+</blockquote>
+
+<p>In other words, he's been around the block a few times in Silicon Valley.  He's
learned a lot and had much to share with us about the world of VCs, startups, scaling companies,
and so on.</p>
+
+<p>Much of what was said is off the record, but I think everyone learned a lot from
Jeff's honesty and experiences.  One amusing think we did learn is that VCs don't want to
fund enterprise software startups.  That's just not interesting to them at all.</p>
+
+<p>Nobody was surprised by that either. :-)</p>
+
+<p>There were a lot of new faces at 106 Miles this time and I hope to see many returning
next time.  Amusingly, when the topic of "how you learned about 106 Miles" came up at my table
there were three common answers:</p>
+
+<ol>
+
+<li>Read about it on Jeremy's blog</li>
+
+<li>Read about it on Joyce's blog</li>
+
+<li>I'm a friend of Joyce</li>
+
+</ol>
+
+<p>Blogs are the new grapevine.</p>
+
+<p>Thanks again to Joyce and CommerceNet for making 106 Miles happen.</p>]]></content:encoded>

+      <description> Forrester analyst and blogger Charlene Li spoke to a packed room
of marketing, PR, and other interested folks today at Yahoo. Her hour-long talk covered many
aspects of blogging, corporate marketing, PR, and what she believes Yahoo can do. Luckily,
she was able to skip most of the intro material since blogs really aren&apos;t new to
Yahoo at this point. Instead she focused on what works, what doesn&apos;t, and how blogging
is a mindset--not a technology. Amen to that!...</description>

+<p>I was glad to hear that she likes what we're doing with the <a href="http://www.ysearchblog.com/">Yahoo!
Search blog</a> and the new <a href="http://developer.yahoo.net/blog/">YSDN blog</a>.
 Once of her recommendations to us was... get this: more blogs!</p>
+
+<p>I don't think that surprised anybody.  But it's always good to hear it from the
outside.</p>
+
+<p>Of course, she used me as an example a few times.  I kind of expected that. :-)</p>]]></content:encoded>

+      <description>I&apos;ve noticed a funny thing in the last year or so. The
vast majority of the time someone I know leaves a job (or is fired) two trends seem to recur:
A sense of relief: &quot;I&apos;m so glad I&apos;m not at that place anymore.&quot;
A complete loss of &quot;spare&quot; time: &quot;I&apos;m busier now than

and realize that there are good reasons for them to go the same route.</p>
