Yahoo is considering investing in hackers with good ideas and technologies, a company executive said on Saturday.
Skip to next paragraph
More News From IDG
"We are open to many ways of having a stake in creative young companies," said Jeff Kinder, Yahoo’s senior vice president for media products and solutions, on the sidelines of a Yahoo Open Hack Day in Bangalore.
The Internet company does not have a fund earmarked for this purpose, or a definite model or set of criteria for such investments, Kinder added.
Hackers and Open Hack Days have proven to be important sources of new ideas and technologies for Yahoo, Kinder said. Meme, now a microblogging site, was transformed from an internal Yahoo product idea into a product on Yahoo’s platform after an Open Hack Day in Brazil in late 2008.
When the APIs (application programming interfaces) for Meme on YQL (Yahoo Query Language) were opened up for hackers at the Open Hack Day in Brazil, the developers built tools to help derive more value out of Meme. "In short, the developer community really helped us build this product to what it is today, thanks to Open Hack Day," a Yahoo spokesman said.
Meme has been rolled out in a number of countries including Brazil, the Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Taiwan, and India.
Koprol, a mobile location-based social networking site in Indonesia, that was acquired by Yahoo in May, was also set up by hackers who had their technology showcased at the Yahoo Hack Day in Indonesia last year, Kinder said.
Starting as an internal event for Yahoo developers, Hack Days were later extended to developers in a number of locations including London, Brazil, Taiwan, and Bangalore.
For the event in Bangalore, which was the third in the city, there were 1,800 registrants, of which about 500 were selected to participate. There were also 123 hacks at the event, making it the largest Open Hack Day so far hosted by Yahoo, the Yahoo spokesman said.
Open Hack Days also help Yahoo get feedback on its new APIs (application programming interfaces) and technologies, such as YAP (Yahoo Application Platform) and YQL, Kinder said. “Open Hack Days bring up a lot of ideas which contribute to our thinking within the company,” he added.

Johnny Depp Pirates Of The Caribbean fourth in the salty seafood franchise via a two-minute video teaser

≪♡c'est ma ♬ guitare ma ♋maîtresse!♚≫
1°) – DO YOU PREFER THE STONES OR THE BEATLES ? It’s pretty interesting because in the beginning I didn’t take The Beatles seriously; they made songs like “Please Mr Postman” from the 1st album so it didn’t hit me but when they began to play “Blue jay way” or “I’m the walrus” I took that band more seriously and when they recorded (during only few years) it’s clear The Beatles was developing incredibly it’s a kind of force of nature while The Stones, I always loved them ‘cause they
2°) came with our same roots : blues, Muddy waters, people like that ... -DO YOU PREFER JAGGER OR RICHARDS ? It depends I mean I can talk about Keith and about Mick too ! -DO YOU PREFER LENNON OR McCARTNEY ? Probably Lennon ...yeah definitely Lennon -DO YOU PREFER SEE YOUR CHILDREN DRUG ADDICTS OR LISTENING TO B.SPEARS ? Well, Spears could be a drug if we are a kind of obsessed by her and if we don't remove the disc : the songs are played continuously. My children's drugs is the air !
3°) – OK WELL DO YOU PREFER SEE PEOPLE PIRATING YOUR ALBUMS OR NOBODY WHO LISTEN TO IT ? – Actually, with Led Zep there were reference cassettes (tapes) every night there were parts of recorded tapes which came to me in my house then there was a period in my life I divorced and left the house and people (close to my ex-wife) stole all these tapes that was all the old concerts until the 80s ! there was also some records of repetitions so if you want to think about a music rape, a kind of drug,
4°) here you have an example but it was sad and that’s the resaon why they had good piracy ‘cause it’s the original tapes ! – DO YOU PREFER THE 1st WAR IN IRAK OR THE 2nd ? I don’t prefer any of these wars ! – DO YOU PREFER A GOOD FOOD OR AN AVERAGE SEX ? Whatever it’s a good food or an average sex it’s always a banquet for me ! -JIMMY DO YOU PREFER YOU WIFE OR YOU MISTRESS ? My guitar is my mistress
5°) GOOD ANSWER ! THANK YOU JIMMY COULD I HAVE AN AUTOGRAPH FOR MY SONS JEREMY AND DANIEL ?
- (SoRrY fOr My EnGlIsH !)

"c'est ma guitare ma maîtresse !!!" wowStairwaytoheaven06 3 days ago
- THANK YOU!!!!!diicley 2 days ago
- @diicley it's my pleasure ! we are led zep fan so it's normal to help ourselves :))
- Tell the french translator to shut up
- @Bellyflops2 I translated it !
- THE BEATLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- @lavcadtomadar they're both amazing. the beatles are more for girls and fairy boys who think flowers in your hair will change the world. the stones were blues men and rock n roll animals
Stones were only amazing before Out of Our Heads came out, back before
that album they were one of the greatest bands, this hard edged perfect
rhythm and blues, but then they got to poppy, to rocky, and stop
mattering, what was great about early stones was that they weren't rock n
roll, and they weren't pop, they were their own thing, but it all
ended much too early
- @lavcadtomadar Your French is as poor as your choice.
- pouvez vous poster toute l'interview SVP?
- could you post the whole interview plz?
pretty sure that was the whole interview, poussy. i'll stick up another
one though since you kids dig it enough to translate it. nice job
stairway. ...he said he can talk TO keith, but that might have just been
- coincidentally, i just posted a video of a Led Zep roadie, tito something, that's a real howler. there's a pic of me and Page on my blog too from christmas in new orleans a while back mid-90s you might like

You definitely should, but be careful where you use them.A single sentence that summarizes the answer.
Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are roughly five times as efficient as a typical household incandescent light bulb. They also last up to 50x longer, since they don't burn out (they don't have a filament), and are a great way to save some money and help the environment.A thorough response that answers the question in detail.
However, unlike incandescent lighting, CFLs usually take a minute to fully light up. I wouldn't install them in bathrooms or by staircases, since these places need to be fully lit quickly for safety. They also contain mercury, which is something to watch out for especially if you have children.A summary of the major different opinions.
Hope that helps! If you want to learn more, Wikipedia has a good article about CFLs at
