Sunday, March 1, 2015. 20 years ago today, one of the first big Internet companies, Yahoo! was incorporated. Yahoo! began as a directory of websites, and back in the day was a useful tool for gathering information from the Web. I talk about the experience of searching the Web for information when Yahoo! was young, and how the site changed as the Web exploded during the later 1990s. The image at the right is the Yahoo! logo from 1995.
I also have a shout-out for the website Past Daily, who needs our help to keep doing what they do -- sharing audio from the beginning of the 20th Century to the present day with the world. Go check them out!
