GeoCities crumbles to $4 billion dust

MacUser: News: GeoC­i­ties crum­bles to $4 bil­lion dust:

Yahoo is shut­ting down GeoC­i­ties, a free ser­vice that hosts per­son­al home pages for con­sumers, which it acquired for more than $4 bil­lion dur­ing the dot­com boom 10 years ago.

This makes me feel a bit sad — my first ever home­page, designed in 1995, was host­ed on GeoC­i­ties. Long gone unfor­tu­nate­ly.
