Before "Between Two Ferns" there was "Between Two Monitors". In the early days of the web David Filo of Yahoo! could do things like appear on computer TV shows such as New Media News and "surf" the web for information on caffeine as a way to promote Yahoo as the web's original aggregator. Take a trip back to 1996 when the web was nothing but gray pages and blue links and Netscape had a future. We even had to include a link to Yahoo! at the end of the piece so people could find the site. David's sidekick is Derek Dukes who co-founded Dipity in 2007. We imagine he's still jacked up on soda and coffee. If there's one constant in this valley it's the steady flow of caffeine. So these links are just as useful today as they were 15 years ago. Enjoy!
