Yahoo's Bid To Think Small

BusinessWeek article about the Yahoo! group that's producing new offerings such as Pipes.  Subscription required for this one. 

Now, Yahoo is trying to tap its inner startup. On Feb. 7 the company released Pipes, a service that allows Yahoo users to combine, or "mash up," data from various Web sites (mixing news feeds from Google (GOOG ) and Yahoo, for example). Even more ambitious is the initiative that gave birth to the idea. Pipes is the first product to come out of Brickhouse, a new division of Yahoo scheduled to launch officially around the beginning of March.
