Happy Birthday to Google, the richest and most powerful 10-year-old in the world! At least I think today is Google's tenth birthday. Launched in 1998 by two twenty-something guys who met at Stanford University, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Google is the world's most comprehensive search engine. We live in the Google Age--I even googled "Google Age" and confirmed my belief! What would the world do without Google? How would we find out about every conceivable (and inconceivable) topic in a flash? Google is an unrivaled research tool--it's hard to imagine what life would be like without being able to use this astounding search engine. There was life before Google (wasn't there?) but now we are so spoiled! For example, how would you find my blogs, Suko's Notebook or La Vache Intéressante, without doing a Google search? It would be a real pain to have to carefully type in the blog addresses each time! I've course I'm kidding but the point is that Google makes finding the needle in the haystack so much easier and faster! Happy birthday! And THANK YOU, Google!
(P.S. In three years, Google will be a teenager--who knows what will happen then?)
