Google 8, Me 18. Happy Birthday to Google and Me.

As you may know today is Google’s 8th birthday, but what you might not know is that it is my 18th birthday today. Google was founded on September 27, 1998.

Google's 8th Birthday

Google Inc. is an American public corporation, first incorporated as a privately held corporation on 7 September 1998, that designed and manages the Internet’s most used search engine. The company has approximately 8,000 employees and is based in Mountain View, California. Eric Schmidt, former chief executive officer of Novell, was named Google’s CEO when co-founder Larry Page stepped down.

The name “Google” originated from a misspelling of “googol,” which refers to a 1 followed by one-hundred zeros. Google has had a major impact on online culture. The verb “google” was recently added to both the Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary and the Oxford English Dictionary, meaning to use the Google search engine to obtain information on the Internet.
