    This at first glance seems like a convenience for users, but I am getting a faint feeling of ’1984′coming into 2007- I get an uneasy feeling about the “appeal” of the brands being tracked by Yahoo’s “vast user network.” I think there are enough arenas for those with similar interests to communicate and turn one another on to products and ideas.

    Very recently, I wrote 4C: Yahoo’s Turnaround Formula, criticizing them for having haphazard offerings with no segmentation.

    This announcement addresses some of my points, in that they are actually tying together various disjointed and haphazard properties around a particular brand, and creating an integrated experience.

    I like it.
