Yahoo Pipes is kind of a big deal

Yahoo Pipes allows anyone to create their own mashup in a method very similar to creating a flowchart.

After messing around just a little I was able to create 2 pretty cool little mashups:

The first one geocodes garage sale locations and puts them on a map. Not very well, but it was really easy to do, so it was still worth the effort

The second one combines 5 different Job search feeds into one, checks to see if the titles are unique, and then sorts the results in descending order by published date. I still prefer for looking for Job information, but if I can also grab the feed to format myself to fix those problems.

All in all, it’s pretty cool stuff. I think I have a real world use for an aggregated real estate news feed on already
