"GifCities: The GeoCities Animated Gif Search Engine was a special project of the Internet Archive done as part of our 20th Anniversary to highlight and celebrate fun aspects of the amazing history of the web as represented in the web archive and the Wayback Machine."
GifCities began as a side project by my colleagues Jefferson and Vinay. They had extracted all the animated GIFS from GeoCities from the Wayback Machine. I saw an opportunity to develop a user interface for this search index and developed it over the weekend. It later became an official project of the Internet Archive, and we spent more time refining it and releasing it to the public.
