Yahoo open Hack

Got a confirmation for Yahoo open hack. So I will be attending the event representing KooKoo. Hope to meet a lot of developers and maybe come out with some cool mashups involving KooKoo. There are just so many Yahoo APIs, I can't wait to get started.

I had already mentioned some telephony ideas for startup weekend here.

I will add some more ideas below:

1. Local search over phone: We should be able to use the Yahoo local API for this.
2. Answers over phone: Use yahoo Answers and KooKoo playtext to dynamically play answers
3. Phone reviews: Maybe use Yahoo Updates API
4. Astrology/News etc over phone
5. Stock alerts over phone

If you have some ideas of integrating with yahoo, please leave them in the comments section.
