Jerry Yang was born in Taiwan in 1968. David Filo was born in Louisiana in 1966. Yang earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering at Stanford University and then continued to work toward his doctorate. Filo earned his bachelor's degree in computer engineering at Tulane University and his master's degree in electrical engineering at Stanford. He then continued to work toward his doctorate in electrical engineering at Stanford, which is how Yang and Filo met in the early 1990s. They became bored with their classes and increasingly attracted to the growing interest in the Internet. They realized the need for and began creating a small index of web addresses, which more and more people began to use. Eventually, in 1994, Yahoo! was born. From there, the trials of financial backing and big business were just beginning for Yang and Filo.
