Like The Death Of Maudie Hopkins

Maudie Hopkins is believed to have been the last surviving Civil War widow. She died in 2008. Similarly, next week will be the death of Alta Vista. You remember Alta Vista, don't you? The best search engine the world had seen...until it was just barely three years old and Google appeared to show us that all earlier "search engines" were no better than drunks wandering from lamppost to lamppost with arms flailing this way and that.

Yes, AltaVista is still alive, just barely, for another week.
