The Yahoo! Query Language provides a rich and dynamic method for obtaining and manipulating data from any source or API on the internet – with YQL the internet becomes your database. Using the simplified SQL syntax that YQL is based in, YQL seeks to open all data on the web into a standardized format. Manipulating and mashing up sources as if they were tables, YQL becomes a repository for exploring government, event, social and API data on the web.
