Yahoo API Broken

The best discussion on the Yahoo API is happening over on Phil Ringnalda's blog.

Phil: Oh, and Yahoo's API uses REST rather than SOAP. [cut] the Yahoo API has a weblog. [cut] Google, if you actually value third party developers, get moving: Yahoo just ate your lunch. [cut] Hrm. Content-Type: text/xml without a charset, <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>. That seems familiar. Isn't that broken?

Randy: The Yahoo! Search API is definately lacking (buggy), but better than anything Google has. Not as good as the MSN Search Beta RSS, but close. Had Yahoo! re-used RSS instead of inventing me a new wheel, then it would be far better than MSN Search Beta RSS.

It's not arguing who's the authority of the domain. It's voting.


"It is the intentional engredient that creates real semantics."

My brain exploded on that one :)


Google reports zero hits on intentional engredient.


either way, it's irrelevant.


" Otherwise, the entire authority link structure of the Web breaks"

The web has an authority link structure? Who knew?
