Today, September 4, 2017, Is Google’s 18th Birthday — It Is Now ‘Of Age’.
Wow, Larry Page and Sergey Brin incorporated Google on September 4, 1998, while still postgraduate students at Stanford. One of their early, Angel investors was Jeff Bezos of Amazon! No wonder he is so rich. I don’t recall seeing any mention, of late, that Jeff Bezos is still an investor. He most likely is, in which case we have a Google — Amazon relationship that I have never heard talked about by financial gurus.
The domain name ‘google.com‘, with “google” per se a misspelling of “googol“, i.e., 10 to the power of 100, September 15, 1997 — just under a year ahead of the incorporation.
I guess Larry and Sergey had NOT Googled “September 4” to realize that it was “E-Day”, for Edsel, a day remembered for spectacular failures. I guess Google proved that wrong.
