We continue our survey of the pioneering social/community sites by sitting down with David Bohnett, who, along with John Rezner, founded Geocities. David recounts how a lifelong passion for communications tech inspired the idea of Geocities, how and why the site grew to become one of the 5 most popular web destinations in the world by the late 90s, as well as the company’s blockbuster sale to Yahoo. We also marvel at how Geocities lives on, thanks to the passion and affection of the Geocities community.

It’s simple really. But as RA’s Saoirse Ryan found when she interviewed Karl Hyde earlier this month in advance of the group’s performance at South West Four in London, it’s been anything but simple for Underworld.

What more could you ask for during Thanksgiving?
