Google, on Friday, celebrated its 21st birthday with a throwback picture of a bulky computer. The system monitors featured Google’s search screen and showcases a timestamp dated September 27, 1998.
The Google Doodle shows you what a typical desktop computer looked like 21 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 Search Engine.
But surprisingly, the company 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, especially since it was incorporated on Sept. 4, 1998.
Regardless, Happy birthday to a company that, for better or worse, helped usher in the information age.
