Jeremy Z reflects on current conditions at Yahoo. Personally, I think Yahoo Pipes was a big win, and while the MapMixer didn’t make my jaw drop like the Pipes, it’s given me lots of ideas. I think the challenge at Yahoo is not to create great things — because it does — but to keep the interest going and try to be as inclusive as possible. (For a company doing so much consumer-oriented stuff, Yahoo’s documentation can sometimes be surprisingly geeky.) For extra credit: Yahoo, do some events on the east coast. NO, NOT NEW YORK OR BOSTON. Those are lovely places, but I’m telling you, there are lots of computer enthusiasts around Atlanta/Charleston/Charlotte/Raleigh/Greensboro/Nashville.
