Google 23rd birthday: Google is celebrating its 23rd birthday with a special cake-themed doodle.
While Google‘s foundation began in 1997, the company was officially established on September 27, 1998.
Sergey Brin, a graduate student at Stanford University at the time, met Google co-founder Larry Page, who was also considering Stanford for graduate school at the time.
By the following year, the two Google co-founders were developing their first prototype and building a search engine together in their dorm rooms. Google Inc. was established in 1998.
“Every day, there are billions of searches on Google in more than 150 languages around the globe,” Google wrote in a blog post about the new Doodle. “From its first server housed in a cabinet built out of toy blocks to its servers now being housed in more than 20 data centers globally, its mission of making the world’s information accessible to everyone remains the same,” the post read further
Happy 23rd Birthday, Google! More years to come!
