Web Goes Software: The Yahoo! Search API

This is starting to get mightily cool. Yahoo! just announced their Yahoo! Developer Network and Search Services. This web stuff is really coming of age now and things are starting to rumble with "websites" offering developer networks more and more. Now you can plug in to Web, Image, News, Video or Local Search via standard APIs. They also have a Blog and a Wiki. John Battelle ads that Overture will be rebranded Yahoo! Search Marketing Solutions and he also has the press release from Yahoo! on his site. Jeremy will probably keep a list of links in relation to this on this site and also ads that this makes his new job a lot clearer and that there will be a book out this summer entitled Yahoo! Hacks. At the same time, Ken Rudman seems to be running Overture Ads on his Site which hints at a possible AdSense liks system from Overture, or should I say Yahoo! Search Marketing Solutions. Lots and lots of interesting stuff going on around Yahoo!.
