Yo-Yo Gifs from the good old days of GeoCities sites

Remember GeoCities? I don’t.

The Internet Archive recently launched GifCities, an online search engine to find archived gifs from old GeoCities sites. Feeling nostalgic, I thought it’d be interesting browse those yo-yo gifs and share some favorites here.

As promised, I’m going to share the apps and my full slides from today’s talk for anyone to reference. If I missed anything, please let me know in the comments and I’ll update the list: …
