Yahoo!’s beloved neon sign in San Francisco may soon be gone for good. The motel-style ad has been a San Fran staple since 1999, a relic of the days of booming dot-coms.
The neon sign proudly proclaimed Yahoo! a “good place to stay on the Internet.” A marquee below allowed Yahoo! to advertise new features and “speak” to San Francisco on special occasions like holidays.
However, more than a decade of tourist photo-ops may come to an end on December 1. Clear Channel, the company who rents out the ad space, has made the space available beginning December 1, 2011.
Though there has been significant nerd outrage since word leaked out, it seems unlikely that the sign can be saved.
