So Yahoo! is axing GeoCities which is kind of sad for those of us who remember when a free megabyte of free hosting was pretty amazing. Yahoo! pretty much wrecked the community that drove the site within days of purchasing it and itâ€™s value was gone. It was in many ways the initial social networking site and existed while web 1.0 was still in beta testing. While the services was useless under Yahoo! who managed to drive away anyone who created anything interesting on it with advertising and bandwidth limits, it is still sad to see it gone. It could have been a lot more.
