Google At 10: My Internet Revolution and Inspiration

about this season last year my wife wrote a love poem for Google on this blog to mark the 9th birthday anniversary of Google Inc. Don't get me wrong, I was not jealous, I was happy because we both share some unparalleled passion for the web, and Google is the King of the web.

Today, 7th September begins the 10th anniversary of this web giant and I want to pay homage to industry, zeal and vision of Google's co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

I serve you the story from ABC, on how the internet search engine, rose from a garage with $10,000 to $200 Billion today.

The world's leading internet search engine Google is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its existence.

Google began life in a garage and now has a market value of nearly $200 billion.

Today Google is one of the most recognised brands on the planet, with its core business as the world's number one search engine boasting 70 per cent of the market.

That leading position has spilled over into the lucrative world of online advertising of which Google claims a 40 per cent share.

In the last decade, Google has constantly expanded and diversified with products like g-mail, Google docs for word processing and spread sheets, Picasa for picture editing, YouTube's video sharing service, Google Earth and maps and the launch just last week of a new internet browser called Chrome.
