Yahoo! flipped the switched today, and their Geocities services found it’s final rest today. It’s a little nostalgic for me, since I spent my formative web design years with Geocities. My first (admittedly garish) website was built using their services, and I think I threw every single bell and whistle into it that I could find. It was the place where I became relatively proficient with HTML and served as the launching point for my current ventures with dynamic web design. It was a great way to get started.
