Please, also find the official french announcement
This announcement is a little bit different from the english one for one
reason. The Yahoo announcement is made of two parts. One part is related
to the servers, the other to the shortcuts.
The shortcuts was an idea initiated and developped by Yahoo! France.
This explain why the shortcuts were first made available today, in
french language only. They will be later implemented in other languages.
They are currently only tested for countries.
You may find the report on how the whole idea of the shortcuts arose on
(What is the capital of Guatemala?)
Thank you to Stéphane Gigandet from Yahoo! International Search
Engineering and to Caroline Constantin from Yahoo! Search France (as
well as to for Christophe Ducamp from CraoWiki) for making this possible.
I would like very much that you read the comment I left on
http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000099.html as I think the shortcuts
story demonstrate the power of networking.
