Yahoo's forgotten birthday is the saddest thing on the internet

Imagine saying the following sentence today: “The most popular index on the World Wide Web is Yahoo.” Admittedly, the term seems a bit esoteric, but the idea that Yahoo is the most popular. anything Sounds fancy. But decades ago, when Yahoo was huge, it had an exclamation point at the end of its name. When you understand the internet like no other. And one might have imagined that there would be a huge, perhaps global, celebration to mark his 30th anniversary.

Instead, the date of January 30, 2024 (30 years since it was founded by Stanford students Jerry Yang and David Filo) passed with little notice. Facebook, which is still relatively young, has received far more coverage in the lead-up to its 20th anniversary on February 4th.
