We all hear about Yahoo! - the center of attraction for ground-searching Microsoft in the world of web. The post is not about what is going on these days, or how things would change in the near future.
Here in, I trace back the journey of Yahoo! as it evolved. From the official
page, I came to know that Yahoo! started as the
Jerry and David's Guide to the
World Wide Web. The name amused as well as stunned me. Why? Three reasons:
First, This was a startling revelation as I always thought Yahoo! to be somewhat synonymous of its coming to existence. A term coined up revolving around founders, idea or inspirational sources, with a touch of Japanese funk.
Second, Jerry happens to be my favorite cartoon character. Anything that has the farthest linkage to Jerry - the lovely little sweet friend - catches my perfect attention.
Third, my first open-source attempt with my friends is also known as Jerry.
Hope this amazes you too!
