Farewell, Geocities. It was nice knowing you. (Wait, no it wasn’t!)

In a message on Yahoo!’s help site, the company said that it would be shuttering Geocities, a free web-hosting service, later this year and will not be accepting any new customers.

Update: I wrote a bit more on the fandom side of things over at Speed Force:

I can’t say I’ll miss GeoCities itself — but there are still a lot of sites connected to comics fandom hosted there. Some are kept current, some are old but still contain useful information, and some are snapshots of an earlier era of online fandom

  1. I had no idea about Geocities. I guess I should make sure I’ve got those pix n whatnot saved elsewhere, before the plug is pulled.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

  2. No problem!

    I think maybe I should start trying to contact Geocities sites I link to or have bookmarked. A lot of them haven’t been updated in ages, but still have useful/interesting info — and if they haven’t been updated in ages, the owners might not log in between now and the time Yahoo pulls the plug.
