Google Commemoration Day
On September 7th we commemorate the Google Search Engine. Sometime in January of 1996, Stanford University Ph.D. students Sergey Brin and Larry Page began a research project. This project involved creating a search engine called BackRub, this project would turn out to be the origin of what we now know as Google. Later, they chose the name Google (a misspelling of “googol”) because it represents the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. They registered the domain name Google.com in 1997.
