R.I.P. Geocities (1994-2009)


26th October 2009… This will be the last day of the epic Free Hosting Space… Millions of people all over the world (not only Nerds…) used this service, with an unbelivable peak from the end of the 90s to 2001.

In 1999 Yahoo bought the company for $3.57 billion… And now, after 15 years of service, Yahoo will cut off power from the leggendary web 1.0 hosting space…

Anyway, this is a Web’s piece of history… If now, we are here with our Blog 2.0, with Facebook, Twitter and so on, We must say thanks to David Bohnett and John Rezner, the minds of Geocities… Thank you guys…
