Yahoo – 10 years on

Check out a piece of Internet history

Yahoo! turned ten years old this week which makes me feel like I’m about ready for
the retirement home. As part of their
, they put up a
copy of their home page from 1995
. I poked around a little and found a
copy from December 1994
from when the site was still hosted at Stanford on a server
called akebono. To do it up right, download
an early version of Mosaic or Netscape
, change your screen resolution to 640×480
with 256 colors, and surf the page that way. Just don’t blame me if you get all weepy
after seeing the gray background and pulsing N in the corner of the browser.
