Yahoo Locks in Hackers for 24 Hours

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the October 6th, 2006

Yahoo!, that benevolent purple and yellow Internet behemoth, opened her doors to hungry hackers of all stripes for 24 hours last weekend. The result was over 500 pizzas eaten, 100+ dozen Krispy Kremes demolished, untold gallons of Rockstar, RedBull and coffee liquified, one major rockstar played out and over 50 API mashup projects completed. Here’s a peak at a few of those projects.

    I appreciate this type of episode. The Segway polo, schwag, zombies, and Big Wheel races I group into technology set & local happenings respectively. The tech-y material like coding marathons, DNS optimization, Digg/snark/meme interviews, and stuff translated into “English 1.0” are just too hip (thoroughly enjoyable) to me.

    One issue you should take into consideration however is the effect this will have on greylisting. Greylisting systems will often whitelist your IP/sender/recipient combination once you get a message through. This goes a long way to increasing future delivery rates, however if you send the same sender/recipient combination over a different IP, that whitelist may not apply and your message will be greylisted hrsaccount once again. You simply have to weigh the pros and cons of this approach.
