Is Yahoo Shutting Down [Update: Yes]


Many years back I cursed for taking ideas many others (including me) had created and building something brilliant and profitable out of them. But it was a fine site and, dammit, they did build a really great system that justly deserved its success and that was streets ahead of anything the rest of us were trying to do. So now I curse Yahoo (as usual) for giving it their inimitable kiss of death.
