I needed the affirmation today. Apparently, I may have just won a contest, this one to be precise. The author of Yahoo! Hacks, Paul Bausch, asked “In what month/year did Yahoo! publicly launch their Search Web Services?”. Yahoo! dutifully searved up the answer via their Yahoo! Search blog as Feb 28, 2005. The prize is a copy of Paul’s book, which is getting great reviews on Amazon. Is it wrong that I’m geeking out over winning a book about hacking Yahoo!? (And can we drop that exclamation point, eh Yahoo?)
Edit: It’s true, I really am a winner!
