Bye Bye, GeoCities!

Yahoo announced that it is closing out the GeoCities services later this year. GeoCities featured one of our first web sites in late 1990s. Once looked upon as a geeky cult, GeoCities couldn’t keep pace with the rest of the web world. (Read here and here.) Even though it may not look good by today’s standards, GeoCities was a great service in late 1990s. For example, we hosted our 3-4 page website, a total of a few Kb, for free! That is during the times when registering a website costed about $75 a year and hosting it costed a lot more than that. Thank you and bye bye GeoCities!
