Yahoo! Netrospective

without comments

10 years, 100 moments of the Web. Happy birthday Yahoo!

Great to see ‘Weblog’ and ‘Blogging’ Claimed 2 places in the list of 100. Wikipedia and Creative Commons are also included in top 100 web events. But where is Google! Come on now Yahoo! Don’t you know- that one should behave nicely on his/her birthday?

I blog, you blog, we all blog. But not in December ‘97, when only a handful of personal web pages with news links and commentary exist. Jorn Barger is the first to truncate “web log” to name his own Robot Wisdom Weblog. A worldwide phenomenon is born.

The proliferation of blogs and built-in tensions with mainstream media come to a head with a CBS report on the president’s military service. In ‘04, bloggers pick apart faulty reporting by Dan Rather and CBS, leading to Rathergate and a showcase for blog power.
