The internet is a series of pipes…

Congratulations to the Pipes team for releasing what I think will be one of the most innovative and powerful web applications to be released this year. If they keep pushing on this front, I’m sure they will be for web publishing what Ableton Live has been for electronic music production (i.e. create an entire new class of musicians).

For those of you who haven’t read about Pipes yet, it is a visually rich application that allows you to plug streams of information together in semantically interesting ways. Tim O’Reilly has done a much better job of describing it than I can.

And seriously, the name pipes was chosen before Ted Stevens said anything about internet plumbing…
