Flickr’s overhaul holds promise of restored glory

Another Yahoo service is going away!

Yes, this time it’s MyBlogLog. So on May 24, 2011 it’s going to be no more, if you where paying for the service you’ll get refunded etc.

It was a good service, but yet again I think it was poorly promoted, more and more now its facebook feature that we see being installed.

So! What is your bet on what Yahoo will axe next?

Yahoo criticized by the father of PHP

From Valleywag:

Über-Programmer Ditches Yahoo Over ‘Lame’ Microsoft Deal

No one likes Yahoo’s search deal with Microsoft. Wall Street wanted more up front money; tech elites called it an abdication, a “shame” and “seppuku.” Now Yahoo is losing a programming icon over the embarrassing arrangement.

Rasmus Lerdorf, inventor of the PHP programming language, confirms he is leaving the company. “It has only been a couple of days,” he told us by email yesterday. “I really don’t know what is next yet… I am enjoying having a bit more time to play with pet projects this week.”

Lerdorf, whose widely-used programming and templating system has been especially popular among Web startups, declined to elaborate on why he left Yahoo. But he was blunt about the matter on Twitter this past summer, just moments after the Yahoo announced a pact in which Microsoft would power its search results — previously handled by in-house code — while Yahoo would continue to sell ads against the results:

If we had to guess where Lerdorf might end up, we’d lay our money on Facebook, a PHP shop and a fast-growing one at that. The massive social network has no doubt pushed Lerdorf’s language to the edges of its performance envelope. More importantly, the young company shows no inclination to outsource software development to its largest competitor and turn itself into a second-tier advertising network.

Yahoo! Update ?

Look like Yahoo updated it’s search result page this morning!

Yahoo strike back?

From CNET:

Guessing the user’s intent is the centerpiece of Yahoo’s efforts on improving search these days, and it needs to find objects, rather than documents, to make that happen.

The end of an era

Wasn’t my first experience with a webpresence, but in the late 90’s that where i was hosting my realaudio stream before podcasting was invented.

I’ll miss you GeoCities. It was really Internet to the people. In a time where we where more producers than consumers.

CNET: Now closing: GeoCites, a relic of Web’s early days
