Yahoo! – 10yrs Old Today!

    March 2, 2005

Yep, Yahoo! is 10yrs old today, ahh… makes you think of scabby knees and catapults no? (jumpers for goalposts…)

yahoo 10th birthdayI’ve linked to Battelle’s post, mainly as i’ve half inched his nice picture, and maybe he wont beat me up now heh..

Also see Gary’s Remembering the early days.

I recall my first experience with Yahoo! It was actually my very first experience on the web – a friend told me how to get to and type in into the searchbox – it took me several attempts to work out what was going on, and i remember thinking that it was actually some kind of secret code word i was typing in, as surely the kind of material i was getting returned was not normal?
