Google, the internet behemoth, celebrated its 25th birthday on September 27, marking a remarkable journey from a dorm room project to becoming an unparalleled global tech titan.

Back in 1997, two Stanford University students, Sergey Brin, and Larry Page, came together, forever altering the course of the internet. Despite initial differences, they united to create a revolutionary search engine. Dubbed initially ‘Backrub’ due to its focus on website links, it later adopted the ‘Google.’

Their initial office was Susan Wojcicki’s garage, an employee who would later rise to become the CEO of YouTube under Google’s umbrella. Fast forward to today, and Google’s headquarters are famously known as the ‘Googleplex,’ nestled in Mountain View, California.

From its early days to the present, Google’s mission has remained constant — making information accessible to everyone. With billions of daily searches conducted in over 150 languages, Google has genuinely revolutionized the way we utilize the Internet.

Beyond search, Google has delved into various technological domains, including cloud computing, self-driving cars, and artificial intelligence.

Google’s inaugural tweet, sent on February 25, 2009, was a binary message that translated to “I’m feeling lucky.”

From evolving from a search engine to becoming a verb in the dictionary, Google has left an indelible mark on the digital age. Today, it continues to inspire the next generation of tech enthusiasts through scholarships and initiatives aimed at nurturing talent.

Google’s vibrant offices are renowned for fostering innovation, creativity, and employee morale. They serve to alleviate stress and anxiety, enhance job satisfaction, and bolster company culture. The tradition of maintaining colorful offices persists to this day.

As Google blows out its 25 candles, it’s not merely a commemoration of its past but also a promise of exciting innovations that lie ahead.
