Yahoo, internet history

In fact, Yahoo’s bad reputation may be thanks, in part, to the fact that it had such a good eye for acquisitions 15 or 20 years ago. It kept buying things that people really cared about, cool companies that could have had more interesting futures if their founders hadn’t sold them to a megacorporation that would eventually pull them from public view.

I remember thinking Yahoo Pipes was going to change the internet.

RIP in peace Yahoo Answers.
