It’s the end of an era today as Geocities officially shuts down. Geocities was a leader in it’s time – an advertising supported free website builder.
Compared with the sophistication of modern websites Geocities sites now look comical. In fact online geek comic xkcd has turned itself into a Geocities styled site in honour of the occasion. Take a walk down memory lane and click on the link.
I wouldn’t shed any tears though. It’s time to move on.
