This new online software creation app by Yahoo called Pipes could be a big deal. (requires Yahoo login) I’m going to play with it this weekend and report back here.
It seems to me much more than a way to mash up different web services. Its a visual programing tool. Non-techie people programing could cause a radical transformation on the web.
Tim O’Reilly has some good thoughts about Pipes.
…to develop a mashup, you already needed to be a programmer. Yahoo! Pipes is a first step towards changing all that, creating a programmable web for everyone.
