So, maybe I’m a little late on the bandwagon, but I just heard that Geocities was closing. I find this immensely sad. I have a few Geocities pages sitting out there, unloved and unremembered. But oh how I loved them when they were new.
Yahoo *says* they’re going to keep service for extant pages, but who knows when that might be changed? And then all those sites, their passwords forgotten, with their blinking banners, and horrendous moving gifs and tinkly midis, that we thought would linger on until the apocalypse will silently disappear.
And the internet,, no, the world, will be a poorer place for it.
