Pipes and Filters for the Internet

In this article Tim O'Reilly borders on a little too much visionary hubris for my taste, but it is nonetheless a good read about a Yahoo tool that is aiming to be the Unix shell of web services.

My favorite quote:

In The UNIX Programming Environment, Kernighan and Pike write that at the heart of the Unix philosophy "is the idea that the power of a system comes more from the relationships among programs than from the programs themselves."
