Yahoo, the first Internet search engine, was created in April 1994 by David Filo and Jerry Yang at Stanford University where Yahoo itself first resided on Yang's student workstation. Currently Yahoo provides over 167 million search results per day.

Pizza Hut
Pizza Hut's offered first online pizza service on August 22nd, 1994. Well... almost. The Web site let customers submit a form which took each customer's order, name, address, and phone number, and then the restaurant would call back to verify.

Vice President Al Gore coined the term "Information Superhighway." He became the point man in the Clinton administration's effort to build a national information highway, much as his father, former Senator Albert Gore, was a principal architect of the interstate highway system a generation or so earlier.

NSF Upgrades
In 1994 NFS installed an ATM (Asynchronous Transmission Mode, 145Mbps) backbone on NSFNET.
