YQL: Yahoo Query Language… Query the Web…

15 04 2009

As a fan of traditional Business Intelligence and a student of the Amazon Associates Web Services I was amazed when I stumbled upon the YQL page of the Yahoo Developer Center.  My quick take is that using a syntax similar to traditional SQL one can write queries to web services offered by Yahoo and as well as any other API on the Internet.  There are some limits on the number of calls per day (100k) and per hour (10k).

So now comes the question about how to use it and take advantage of the possibilities it provides.  I am going to have to think about this… 

Querying RSS... and just about anything else on the web.
