GeoCities to Close, A Part of My Web History Evaporates


GeoCities is closing later this year.  If you were on the web in the late 90s, you knew GeoCities.

I cut my web page teeth on GeoCities, signing up for a free account over ten years.  I remember when my GeoCities page got tied to my Yahoo! member name, shortly after Yahoo! bought GeoCities in 1999.

The cause and effect on GeoCities prompted me to learn HTML.  I had a taste of simple web development and I wanted more control.  I wanted to hand code, and the rest is history.

I haven't really thought about GeoCities in years, but I'm sorry to see it go.  Another part of my personal web history is evaporating.
