Facts: Google is the internet!


The Google Story in 2 minutes Google is the internet
The internet search engine ‘Google’ was founded by two smart mathematicians Sergey Brin and Larry Page. It all started as a college project and now it rules the internet rather Google is the internet!. The two met at Stanford University in the 1990s where they were both attending graduate school.

Together, they ended up collaborating on a paper titled The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine. Eventually, this paper would lead Brin and Page to launch the Google search engine in 1998. Google success is solely because of their PageRank algorithm. The term “Google” is similar to “Googol”. “Googol” is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. Today Billions of internet users are dependent on google and today Google has all the answers for your questions. Google has totally changed the way people find information, from libraries to internet.
here’s a very quick look back at the Google story over the last 11 years. From Stanford to Mountain View and around the world, featuring many different products, starting with BackRub (Search) up to Google Wave, StreetView and Chrome. The 2 minutes video explains Google’s milestones so far would help piece your understanding of Google together.
If you found this video interesting I’d also recommend you reading David Vise’s fantastic book ‘The Google Story’. Really interesting.
