Then there were 41. Then a big corporate came along, took over, and it was never the same any more.

First six what? Where?

Went uncracked!

Answer: Remember Geocities? It was started by a company called Beverly Hills Internet back in 1994. Websites were organized into groups, each named after a City. These were the GeoCities.

The first six Geocities were Colosseum, WallStreet, RodeoDrive, Hollywood, SunsetStrip and WestHollywood (representative images of each L to R above) (http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0EIN/is_1995_July_5/ai_17190114)

The number of Cities soon went up to 41. Then Yahoo bought out Geocities, and decided to give everyone “vanity” URLs, like geocities.com/lusernamehere . That original sense of city-communities soon disappeared, and Geocities turned into a massive n00b-infested site chock full of crappy GIFs and bad HTML.
