Congrats to waferbaby, mroth, and ph for totally owning on today’s friend importing feature (aka beehive).

We’re a little late to the game but its awfully nice to be able to launch with zero screenscraping, and zero phishing-creepy-give-us-your-password. This is what data-portability-open-data-delegated-trust future looks like.

update: and yes, we’re cheating, because Yahoo’s addressbook API is still internal+partners only. We’re working on it.
