The "internet" is a series of tubes. So I decided to play plumber and hook up a few pipes the wrong way. What has been generally stopping me from writing too many web mashups has been the simple hurdle of making cross-domain data requests. While poking around pipes, I discovered that I could do cross-domain sourcing of data after massaging it into shape in pipes.yahoo.com.
You can poke around my pipe which has been used to create J002ube (say YooToobe ... so that j00z r l33t) to play the Daily Show videos. The player has zero lines of server side code and uses the Y! hosted pipes or client side code to accomplish everything.
More stuff coming up these pipes ...--
Whoever pays the piper calls the tune.
