Happy Birthday Google!

Google in 1998.

Google celebrates its 14th birthday today and it’s hard to remember a time before “Google” was an every day action.

Founded in 1998 by Stanford classmates Larry Page and Sergey Brin. The name “Google” is a play on the mathematical term “googol” which means one followed by one hundred zeroes. Obviously their lofty goal for search results back then.

When doing web searches fourteen years ago–we didn’t call it “googling”–my main destination was Yahoo! or Dogpile. MSN was bloated, and AltaVista was ugly. Yahoo! was king of the search castle, and Dogpile was merely a search engine that searched other search engines.

Now there’s really only one search engine. The term “Google” has become such an integral part of our cultural lexicon that it’s inseperable from the concept of searching the web. No matter what search engine you use now, you’re still “Googling.”

Happy 14th Birthday to Google who’s company motto is “don’t be evil.” Let’s hope they can stick to that.
