    COMMENTS: I’m Micah Laaker, Director of User Experience for Yahoo!’s Open Strategy, which basically means I lead a team of tremendously talented designers and prototypers on our efforts to support 3rd-party developers and publishers (a.k.a. people like you, who create interesting and innovative Web-connected products). Yahoo! offers over 40 services and APIs to the world, ranging from Data (think: content) to Services (think: Mail and Search). Last, but maybe most important of all, I’m from Omaha. You can ask anyone I work with back in the Bay Area; they hear it over and over again: I’m proud to be from Omaha, and love the creative spark here that kick-started what I’ve done to date.

  • 19. COMMENTS: From Pipes, I began working on one of Yahoo!’s recent efforts. Our Application Platform allows anyone to take content and experiences from their product and launch them into a Yahoo! canvas. Think of our “Apps” as your site inside of Yahoo!... i.e. meeting your users where they already are. Users can add any apps they wish to places like My Yahoo!, where millions of users start (and end) each day. Here, for example, you can see one of Watercooler’s (a great company down the road from us in Mountain View) TV-themed Apps for Arrested Development both on its own full canvas page and as a widget on My Yahoo!. Addicted to… Trivia, quizzes, and quotes about TV

COMMENTS: Just as an example of how powerful this platform is for getting your content in front of Yahoo! users, this is an App I created with some others in our group in about 10 hours for our recent Hack Day (an event we throw quarterly to quickly try out ideas by building working prototypes within 24 hours). It takes what Apps my friends have installed, subtracts the Apps I’ve installed, and gives me back a recommendation for which Apps I should consider installing (as my friends are already active therein). 10 hours. That’s it... and most of that time was just spent on the CSS and layout. Instantly deployed and available to any Yahoo! user for installation. Bringing it all together apps.yahoo.com/-octyip6g

    COMMENTS: To try out the different products I just shared, be sure to go to developer.yahoo.com. Specifically, be sure to try each of these (YUI, BOSS, YAP, YQL, and Updates) to use our latest and greatest products. By doing so, you’ll save yourself the need to learn (the hard way) the same lessons I learned before (about recreating services and reaching users where they’re already at). Instead, *you* can dive into building cool, innovative products that solve problems you want to tackle.
