Using free online tools

Howard Owens has an illuminating post about using free onine tools to enhance newspaper websites – in this case configuring Yahoo Pipes to produce lists of "related stories" to accompany news articles.

  1. Pipes is a pretty powerful tool.

    We use it on to combine AP video and staff produced video feeds and return it as JSON, which we turn into a multimedia carousel on the home page.

    We do have to cache the output though, to avoid having Yahoo! shut the feed down after a minute or two of traffic.
