Zvents CEO says Yahoo to open up its map API


Ethan Stock, CEO of Zvents, says that Yahoo is telling him that tomorrow they’ll take the limitations off of Yahoo’s mapping APIs. If that’s true, I have to really thank Yahoo for doing this.

Why? Well, this puts the ball squarely in our court. Er, in Virtual Earth’s court.


Oh, I like this disruption game a lot! (And, yes, we haven’t heard the last of the disruptions in the mapping and advertising and services businesses. Not by a long shot. The mapping game is just getting started and will be going for years.

Next up on the disruption schedule? Gillmor Gang, tomorrow. I wanted to take the day off of blogging and all this stuff but I keep getting disrupted. Heheh.

Another disruption? Microsoft is starting to do acquisitions again. Alex Barnett covers our acquisition of FolderShare.
