Yahoo Develops Developers

While Microsoft is promoting Azure, its new cloud development platform, rival Yahoo put some more meat on its development platform bones: the Yahoo Open Strategy. This platform is responsible for creating the most self-indulgent acronym ever (Y!OS). Does Yahoo really expect the press to use this monstrosity?

The Yahoo plan is to have developers exploit already-existent Yahoo services and offer these apps to what is still a substantial user base. Developers can tap into Yahoo's query language, application services and social features.

Can developers turn Yahoo once again into a contender? What apps would you like to see? Thoughts welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
