Google celebrates 22nd birthday

Google celebrates 22nd birthday

Google is marking its 22nd year in existence Sunday with an animated birthday Doodle.

The Doodle shows us Google's G celebrating with its oogle colleagues with cake and presents in an online video conference party. The virtual party reminds us that in the time of coronavirus, it's important to maintain social distancing, even on special occasions.

 The company was founded roughly 22 years ago when Stanford Ph.D. students and Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page published a paper called The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web program. In it, the pair outlined Google, a prototype "large-scale search engine" that had a database of "at least 24 million pages."

In the 22 years since Brin and Page outlined their vision for an inquiry engine, the corporate has grown up dramatically. Google's program now indexes many billions of webpages, but the corporate has gone from humble beginnings as an inquiry engine to the foremost dominant force in advertising. Google now features a parent company, Alphabet, with tentacles that touch everything from self-driving cars to its Android mobile software to the extension of life.

But its birthdate is a touch murky. the corporate has celebrated its birthday on Sept. 27 since 2006, but the previous year, it celebrated its birthday on Sept. 26, and in 2004 and 2003, the date was Sept. 7 and Sept. 8, respectively. Google isn't even sure why this is often, especially since it had been incorporated on Sept. 4, 1998.
