While at Stanford, he teamed up with Jerry Yang to create a directory in order to share sites with their friends. And those are the humble beginnings of internet giant, Yahoo!, Inc., which organized searches and helped other people find relevant results, or sites, on the internet. Eventually, the company became one of the most popular search engines on the web. It has numerous features and services, besides web search. With Yahoo!, you can find websites on online dating, shopping and website hosting. But Filo is best known for developing a Server Program written in the C programming language, which was the server-side software used on early versions of the Yahoo! web site. Filo is estimated to be worth $1.2 billion. That would rank him the 882nd richest person in the world. He’s also a philanthropist. He gave $30 million to his alma mater in 2005, the School of Engineering.
