Technology Little history and interesting fact about Google !
[Image: attachment.php?aid=478]
Google is my favorite search engine and I believe that its the most popular search engine ! However, we everyday use Google for searching but many of us don't know some interesting information and history of Google. Lets check out them Big Grin
Google began in January 1996 as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin when they were both PhD students at Stanford University in Stanford, California
The domain name for Google was registered on September 15, 1997, and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998

Google Founders :
  • Larry Page
  • Sergey Brin

Name :
The original name of Google was Backrub. Later the company change the name.
The name 'Google' is actually derived from the mathematical term 'googol' which is basically 10 to the hundredth power or 1 with a 100 zeros following it

Little Downtime:
On August 16, 2013, Google was not reachable for 5 minutes, in that time the global Internet usage was decreased by 40%.

Google wanted to sell the company:
Google wanted in 1997 to sell their search engine system to Yahoo for $ 2 million. Yahoo didn’t accept this offer. Later, Yahoo wanted to come back to this offer and offered 3 billion in 2002. This time Google didn’t accept the offer. Today Yahoo is much less valuable as Google. I bet they feel pretty stupid right now!

First Tweet from Google:
The first tweet from Google was: “I’m feeling lucky” in binary code

Google Rents Goats
As part of their green initiative, Google regularly rents goats to mow the lawns of their mountain view HQ

Interesting way to hire employee

Google uses a web tool called foo.bar to recruit new employees based on what they search for online
If Google sees that you're searching for specific programming terms such as Python, they might just ask you to apply for a job.
Most of the time Google doesn't care about certificates ! Even nearly 13% Google employee didn't completed their college education !

Parent Organization:
Alphabet Inc. is the parent organization of Google.

The PageRank algorithm can not only rank pages for search engines but the exact same algorithm can be used to determine which species are about to go extinct.
Basically, a “back link” is similar to “species that another species can eat to survive.” The more “back links” in this sense that a species has, the more likely it is to NOT go extinct. Interesting.
