Yahoo! Follows Google

Looks like Yahoo! is starting its own Google Base alternative. Welcome to Yahoo! Time Capsule. Although at first sight they look as if they are completely different things, yet I get the feeling the time capsule is an initial test and seed by Yahoo to develop its own version of Google Base. Time will show us what it will turn up to be. Perhaps it is just some sort of experiment by Yahoo! and a way to let the user community help it categorize content.

The interesting thing is that Yahoo! is following Google in using far fetched mind expanding ideas, by saying the capsule will be opened in year 2020 same way as Google set a far date for reaching its goal of organizing the world's information. Yahoo! selection of topic also reminds us of Google's early lunar jobs ad.
