  • The Evolution of Google

    The fact that Google is in the dictionary just shows you how powerful and popular this company has become. It seems that maybe twice a year Google is introducing new programs, much more than just a search engine. Read up on how this company started with a little history on Google:

    1995
    •    Larry Page and Sergey Brin meet at Stanford. (Larry, 22, a U Michigan grad, is considering the school; Sergey, 21, is assigned to show him around.) According to some accounts, they disagree about almost everything during this first meeting.
    1996
    •    Larry and Sergey, now Stanford computer science grad students, begin collaborating on a search engine called BackRub.
    •    BackRub operates on Stanford servers for more than a year—eventually taking up too much bandwidth to suit the university.
    1997
    •    Larry and Sergey decide that the BackRub search engine needs a new name. After some brainstorming, they go with Google—a play on the word “googol,” a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. The use of the term reflects their mission to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web.
    1998
    August
    •    Sun co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim writes a check for $100,000 to an entity that doesn‘t exist yet: a company called Google Inc.
    September
    •    Google sets up workspace in Susan Wojcicki‘s garage at 232 Santa Margarita, Menlo Park.
    •    Google files for incorporation in California on September 4. Shortly thereafter, Larry and Sergey open a bank account in the newly-established company‘s name and deposit Andy Bechtolsheim‘s check.
    •    Larry and Sergey hire Craig Silverstein as their first employee; he‘s a fellow computer science grad student at Stanford.
    December
    •    “PC Magazine” reports that Google “has an uncanny knack for returning extremely relevant results” and recognizes us as the search engine of choice in the Top 100 Web Sites for 1998.

    1999
    February
    •    We outgrow our garage office and move to new digs at 165 University Avenue in Palo Alto with just eight employees.
    April
    •    Yoshka, our first “company” dog, comes to work with our senior vice president of operations, Urs Hoelzle.
    May
    •    Omid Kordestani joins to run sales—the first non-engineering hire.
