this week, YAHOO ushered in its 20 year old birthday in a strange way. On Monday, CEO · Marisa; Meijer (Marissa Mayer) recruited 3400 employees gathered in the company Park, in unison with yodeling folk singing, call Yahoo syllable, a minute, allegedly created a new world record.
Meijer later proudly pulled the video on his Tumblr account, but led to a burst of emotion — with a series of storm recently, the "toot" sound in an unbroken line is more like a final cry out of this great company.
back to 20 years ago, the Internet was just a geek ‘s toy before Yang Zhiyuan and his buddy, YAHOO, created it. The emergence of two start-up companies changed everything in 1994-95 years. Netscape launched its first browser in October 1994, bringing the Internet into the lives of ordinary people, while YAHOO’s free search service launched in March 1995 was equally important. If it weren’t for YAHOO, the Internet could be a luxury for the rich for a long time.
in addition to creating the Internet age, the birth of YAHOO has also changed the capital market profoundly. In April 1995, YAHOO was born only a month because of using too much resources of the school of Stanford University were out, so Yang Zhiyuan came to the Stanford University and Filo a sand hill road risk capitalists seek financial assistance. The two didn’t have much hope, but the final result surprised everyone. Moritz, the head of Sequoia Capital, traded $1 million for a 25% stake in a small company with only two people and several broken computers, and more importantly, the company did not have any income.
, this investment is also an epoch-making event, it means that in the Internet era, the capital began to sell rights, personal wisdom and huge amount of capital enjoy equal status. Two young men who changed the world while eating pizza became a new icon. They pride themselves on calling themselves "YAHOO chiefs.". Since then, entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, a large number of young people raging like a storm, the tide began to seize overweeningly ambitious. It was the beginning of Wall Street’s decline and the dawn of Silicon Valley.
