What's the first website you've ever visited? No, dear readers, JewOrNotJew.com is probably not the right answer here. It's the answer for the BEST website you've ever visited, natch.
For us, the answer to the first question is Yahoo! Back in the mid-90s, Yahoo! was pretty much synonymous with the World Wide Web. Its home page is where everything started. Its directory of websites was the end-all. Its search engine had no real competition.
In a few years, that quickly changed. Other portals popped up. The directory became obsolete. Search engines? Let's not even mention the G-word here, OK?
Well, perhaps we do have to mention the G-word, because the person currently in charge of Yahoo! is one of Google's first ever employees, Marissa Mayer. No, she is not Jewish, but somehow it doesn't concern us as much as it would have in the mid-90s...
Verdict: Not a Jew.
