Google Birthday Doodle : Today’s Google Doodle comes with a GIF that makes Google G25gle.
Search giant Google celebrates its 25th birthday today with a special doodle. Google Inc. was founded on September 4th, but for more than ten years the company celebrated its birthday on September 27th. So today the company took “memory lane” and presented various doodles to celebrate this special occasion.
Today’s Google Doodle comes with a GIF that changes “Google” to “G25gle.” The tech company said it is using today as a “time to think” as it heads toward the future.
“Today’s Doodle celebrates Google’s 25th anniversary. And while we at Google look to the future, birthdays can also be a time for reflection. Let’s take a walk down memory lane to find out how we were born 25 years ago,” Google wrote on its blog.
Google was founded by PhD students Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who met in Stanford University’s computer science program in the late 90s. They quickly learned that they shared a similar vision – to make the World Wide Web a more accessible place. According to the blog, the pair worked tirelessly in their bedrooms to develop a prototype for a better search engine. “When they made significant progress with the project, they moved their operations to Google’s first office – a rented garage.
Google Inc. was officially born on September 27, 1998,” it said. The company further emphasised that much has changed since 1998, but also said that its mission has remained the same – “to organise the world’s information and make it accessible and useful to everyone”. Thanking users “for evolving with us over the past 25 years,” Google added, “We can’t wait to see where the future takes us together.” Google’s current CEO is Sundar Pichai, who last month wrote a letter to celebrate the company’s birthday.
He recalled the company’s journey, its role in changing technology and the path to the future. He expressed gratitude to the users, employees and partners who have been part of Google’s success. He also expressed appreciation for the constant challenge of innovation and the dedication of former and current Googlers.
In his remarks, Member Pichai also emphasised the importance of innovation and adaptation. He recognized that technology that was once considered exceptional quickly became ordinary when the limits were pushed.
