Yahoo Pipes

Yahoo Pipes is kind of an interesting tool. I’m not sure I’m that enthused about it yet, but I can see the potential. If I wanted finer control over my RSS feeds, then I could see using it, but that seems like a pretty small target market. Most users don’t even know what RSS is.

I can’t tell who exactly is the target market, is it programmers? Because reading the documentation, it sure looks like it. But do programmers want a tool like this? Yes it’s pretty cool, but I’m still not entirely sold on it. I think programmers could publish their own designed pipes and that’s worth something, but the concepts in Pipes make it seem pretty far out of reach of the average user.
