    Yahoo! Pipes Yahoo! Pipes Presentation Transcript

    • Yahoo! Pipes
      (the 7.5 minute overview for Corporate Librarians / Information Professionals)
      Alexander Feng
    • What is Yahoo! Pipes?
      “Pipes is a powerful composition tool to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web.” (pipes.yahoo.com)
      …Or to put it another way that helps us:
      Combines internet data from multiple sources and feeds it into one:RSS feed, web page, map, slide show, list, Sharepoint page, email newsletter, phone, Twitter, Facebook …
    • How It Helps
      Combines multiple RSS streams into one feed
      Enables custom filtering of RSS content
      On-the-fly translation of content
      Enables reformatting & publishing to other platforms / intranet (Sharepoint, email)
      Enables RSS for non-RSS sites
      Integrates with a web page easily (embed tags)
    • Three “Easy” Use Cases
    • Sample Use #1 (very easy)
      Combine multiple RSS feeds into one
    • Combine this content(and sort by date)
    • End result:
      http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=72bd80d1d4cec7efa106b3ab93daaef5
      (this is an RSS feed; it also can go on a webpage (embed) or in an email, to phone)
    • Sample Use #2 & #3 (easy)
      - Add RSS feeds that need filtering
      - Foreign language sources
    • Add this feed(but only add the P&G stuff)
      Solution: Filter by “Procter” for this feed only

    • Add this French blog(but I want to read it in English)
      http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=821f7a4419dd4d1c36be4f49105ade65
    • Just the tip of the iceberg…
      • Create your own feed for web pages without RSS feeds
      • Modify embedded links in RSS
      • Say, to redirect a link to Factiva instead of Lexis-Nexis
      • Merge with Geolocation and display on a map
      • Say, all the P&G news mapped by location
      • Pull from CSV or XML files
      • XBRL possibilities…
      • Using helper applications
      • Create an integrated, branded RSS email newsletter
      • Archive your custom feeds for future reference
    • Potential Gotchas
      Requires IE7 or Firefox
      Entirely hosted by Yahoo!
      Only for items which are online
      (no items requiring authentication & proxy*)
      Tied to one username
      For advanced items, may need web know-how
      *doable, but difficult
