Bradley Horowitz, who manages the Technology Development Group at Yahoo, has been bitten by the blogging bug.
Not only do you get pictures of Rashi, his amazingly cute dog, but you get to learn about the Creators, Synthesizers, and Consumers pyramid that makes so much social software actually work.
Now we have almost the entire team blogging.

I thought you ran Yahoo?
awesome! more talk, less rock!
Where's Pasha's blog?
I think maybe to be and worse.
Great to see another Y! blogger. I am curious, what is Yahoo's corporate stance on internal and external blogging? Is is encouraged? Also, do you use Wikis internally?
>I thought you ran Yahoo?
Jeremy reminds me of Superman,
One minute he's a sad lonely geek,
The next he's given super hero powers as soon as he opens Wordpress.
If course he could run Yahoo, but blog permitting.
This pyramid is a great mechanism for designers to leverage when considering building services that are driven by an architecture of participation. It definitely is consistent with the notion that there are always going to be "classes" of users for any given product. The trick is to not only add value to each class of users, but also to leverage their respective feedback/use to add value to the rest of the user base. As an aside, I really enjoy your blog - keep up the good work. Cheers!
Jeremy, I think our two departments need to talk. I think I'm the only one in our property that blogs. wtf is up with that?
