Below is the original email exchange between Jerry Yang and I when he was a student at Stanford, from December 21, 1994. Yahoo! was still a hobby for him and David Filo as they worked toward their degrees. Back then Yahoo! lived at akebono.stanford.edu/yahoo/. My company was not quite a year old and I was submitting my new web site to Yahoo! At the time Yahoo! did not have a category for “Web Promotion” because the web promotion industry didn’t exist yet. It’s hard to imagine that now. I had to look through my ancient retired IBM 286s in the basement to find the below email.
