Google is 23 years old today and it celebrating it with an animated homepage Doodle that features a chocolate frosted cake.
It is said that one chance encounter can change the course of your life. In Google’s case, a chance encounter between two computer scientists changed the course of the Internet and the lives of millions.
In 1997, Sergey Brin and Larry Page the co-founder were student at Stanford school. What became the largest search engine today, started in their dorm rooms. By 1998, the first prototype was developed. Google Inc. was officially born.
“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.
