RIP Geociites

In the early days of the World Wide Web, there was no Facebook, there was no MySpace, and Twitter wasn't even a thought in anyone's imagination. There was however, GeoCities. Web pages for anyone with a little time and a little HTML knowledge.

Yahoo is retiring GeoCities, and will soon be closing the service all together. In this sad time for Internet pioneers everywhere, let us remember fondly the forefather of social networking. The king is dead. Long live the king.
