44 Years Old Born: 1968 Birthplace: Taiwan A former Ph.D. student in electrical engineering at Stanford University, Yang and classmate David Filo founded Yahoo in 1994 as a way of keeping track of their personal interests on Internet. they converted Yahoo to allow users to search the Internet and to create customized lists of sites. Yahoo developed into a major web portal and an $11 billion business within four years. Yahoo continues to be among the top Internet directories and search engines.
Yahoo is one of the most popular search engines like that of Google. It was founded in 1994 by Stanford University graduate students Jerry Yang and David Filo. Originally a website called "Jerrys Guide to the World Wide Web," it was simply a directory of other websites organized . Yahoo provides internet services around the world, including search engine, web portal, Yahoo mail, directory services and more. January, 2010, Yahoo held the worlds largest market share in online display advertising.
The Web site started out as "Jerry and Davids Guide to the World Wide Web" but eventually received a new moniker with the help of a dictionary. The name Yahoo! is an acronym for "Yet another Hierarchical Officious Oracle," but Filo and Yang insist they selected the name because they liked the general definition of a yahoo: "rude, unsophisticated and uncouth."
