What's up with Yahoo?

Yahoo is definitely experiencing some pain. Three days ago, my favorite part of -- the news feeds of items related to your portfolio -- just disappeared, leaving a big open void in the middle of my page. No word on where it went, why, or when it might return.

Then earlier this evening I found their image search api has changed in a way not compatible with their published SDK's, so if you were using them on your site, your site was broken. Again no words of warning. I just had to dig through their code and patch it.

Now I just read about more internal staff moves within Yahoo. They are clearly focusing on sales, which is good. I just wish they wouldn't take their eyes off of their tech.

I understand where you're coinmg from, but I have to disagree with your statement that Django tries to be everything, as I find the exact opposite to be the case.Django is amazing for what it does, and that is help you quickly develop dynamic websites. If I have a new project, and it fits within the scope of Django's mission, I'll use Django every time. If I'm bolting on functionality to an existing site, the Django probably isn't the right choice. Likewise, if I'm using data from several sources, or trying to share a DB with another app, I'm not likely to go with Django.I've not used Pylons, as my first experience with Python was Django, but I'm surely looking for something more generic. As it stands, if a site doesn't fit the mold, I'm falling back to PHP (CodeIgniter). I like Python very much, though, and I will soon get around to deciding on a more all-purpose framework. That could be Pylons, it could be TurboGears, Zope Who knows? No matter what I chose, though, Django will still be my go-to tool for rapid development.
