Geocities-izer: make any webpage look like it was made by a 13 year-old in 1996

The Geocities-izer is a tool that promises to "make any webpage look like it was made by a 13 year-old in 1996." And it does exactly what it says on the tin.

  1. Aw man, I *was* 13 in 1996. The first and last generation to copy out HTML in cursive on NKOTB notepads. I loved my geocities page – especially the guestbook. Kindof wish I could read it now, would be like reading an old diary, complete with snarky jokes from your little brother. This (and the Prince of Persia film) are making me feel a little old!

  2. Interesting. I made a small, somewhat flippant shrine page a few years ago in memory of all those teenage anime fanpages back in the mid 90s. This article reminded me of it. Initially it was a joke between me and my friends, but I’ve kept it around:

    Jesus.. Geocities. That place defined an era.

  3. I had a look at through geocities-izer, and it was fantastic. I wonder if Jakob Nielsen has indigestion now.

  4. this is great. i was 13 in 1996! i grew up on a college campus, so we got internet right around 96/97… i wish i could see my old geocities site!

  5. Hmm…some people still make sites that look like they are from 1996. This website for a 2010 voice over actors conference is one example:

    …because anything is artistic if you use the emboss effect!
