Google Doodle celebrates search engine’s 25th birthday

Google is celebrating is 25th birthday with a special Doodle which was the search giant’s fist logo.

The search giant also shared how it came into being in 1998.

Here’s what the statement issued by Google says:

“And while here at Google we’re oriented towards the future,  birthdays can also be a time to reflect.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane to learn how we were born 25 years ago… By fate or luck, doctoral students Sergey Brin and Larry Page met in Stanford University’s computer science program in the late ‘90s.

They quickly learned they shared a similar vision: make the World Wide Web a more accessible place.

The pair worked tirelessly from their dorm rooms to develop a prototype for a better search engine.

As they made meaningful progress on the project, they moved the operation to Google’s first office — a rented garage.

On September 27, 1998, Google Inc. was officially born. 

Much has changed since 1998 — including our logo as seen in today’s Doodle — but the mission has remained the same: to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Billions of people from all over the globe use Google to search, connect, work, play, and SO much more!”
