Geocities Shuts Down…Geeks Morn

In the beginning of the Internet there was Geocities.  A great little site that allow people to publish their own webpage and be part of an online community.  Yes BlueHost??? this was the dawn of social networking however crude it was.  I myself never participated in it, but did stumble across lots of good information on people’s sites.

Yahoo! bought Geocities at the peak of the dotcom bubble for around $3 Billion.  I hope it was worth it, because I always felt it wasn’t the same and in a downward slide sense then.  Oh well, we’ll just cast off the web content of Geocities just like that damn dancing baby on Ally McBeal.
