Happy Birthday, Google
Ten years ago, the Internet was changed forever...scratch that...the world was changed forever. On September 7, 1998, equipped with a mere four computers and $100k from investor Andy Bechtolsheim, Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google Inc. Ten years later, the company is worth $150 billion, employees nearly 20,000 people, and is one of the most well known brands in the world. It's hard to imagine a world without Google, as it has become synonymous with searching; so much so, that in 2007, "google" officially became a verb. So we at OCC would like to take our hats off to Google and its founders and wish them many more successful years ahead.
