Times they are a changing, constantly so in the world of technology. This is reflected in the closure of the last surviving human ran catalogue of the web. Running for nearly 2 decades, the closure of DMOZ the open content directory of the World Wide Web, undoubtedly hails the end of an era. DMOZ, an acronym of Directory Mozilla, was rolled out just under 19 years ago as a rival to the then dominant Yahoo! Directory. Yahoo!

It officially closed in December 2014.

The End Of DMOZ as of Mar 17, 2017
