(Hat Tip: Caleb from the Gmail Lounge)
On September 7, 1998, Google Inc. opened its door in Menlo Park, California. The door came with a remote control, as it was attached to the garage of a friend who sublet space to the new corporation's staff of three. The office offered several big advantages, including a washer and dryer and a hot tub. It also provided a parking space for the first employee hired by the new company: Craig Silverstein, now Google's director of technology.
With most of the world focusing on Katrina and Iraq, it seems that Google has forgotten it's own anniversary which is usually commenced by some new art design of their logo on the home page. Last year they had balloons and a six to replace one of the "O's" but apparently they seem to have forgotten to carry out the ceremony this year. Perhaps somebody needs to remind them?
Editor's note: Since today is officially Google's birthday, this author is going to celebrate by offering invites inside both Gmail and Orkut. For those desiring Orkut invites (of which this blog has plenty) simply visit this post and it will give you instructions on how to acquire a ticket to the inside (and no there isn't any cost to you or benefit to me--these Orkut invites are free).
Those desiring Gmail invites can simply email this blog author () and you will receive an invite to one of the greatest email services on the net (spammers not allowed).
Apparently (as of this post) a Google News search only brings up two news organizations celebrating Google's 7th year on planet earth. Perhaps many of them have forgotten, or perhaps many of them don't care. Well, in either case, if the media will not celebrate, the bloggers definitely will.
