While Google's search engine and advertising tools set the pace for new ways of searching information, we believe that Yahoo! may be setting the pace for new ways of serving information...
From Morse Code to blogs...
For sure, in any given setting, the pros probably out-shot the amateurs 100% of the time. But the amateurs outnumbered the pros, and they just happened to be in a lot of situations where they captured great images.
Blogs are not for everyone. There are many gems to be found in blogs, but there is also a lot (like A LOT) of noise.
In our experience, if there is value in something that is also easy / friendly to use, people will use it.
It seems to make sense to to read your blog when they want it and where they want it.
In our model, Yahoo! potentially serves as an "agnostic" Associated Press, collecting freelance pieces from the Web, and distributes a portion of revenue generated by advertising in each one of its syndicated papers, meaning each of those personal syndicated feeds that users set up.
