Yahoo becoming a Web 2.0 powerhouse

By Herb

Yahoo has been quietly embracing new technologies like RSS, tagging, podcasting and social bookmarking to carve out a major role in the future of the web. Yahoo is also talking about “democratizing” the ranking of sites by using the popularity of sites with users as an alternative to Google’s Page Ranking (link popularity) mechanism. Sounds interesting, and possibly a more valid apporach.
