Google

In 1996, Google began as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Ph.D. students at Stanford. Basically, Google was developed by two students working on a project. The name "Google" came from a misspelling of "googol," which refers to the number represented by a 1 followed by one-hundred zeros. the verb, "google," was added to the Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary and the Oxford English Dictionary in 2006, meaning, "to use the Google search engine to obtain information on the Internet."

The most visited site on the internet is now Google. That's pretty insane! Exclamation Exclamation

It's amazing that just a bunch of kids were able to change the way we obtain information. Without Google I don't know how this generation would have survived.

That really is crazy. And very true; this generation wouldn't be able to survive without Google, or the internet in general. In fact, I admire the last few generations that aced school while depending solely on books. I wonder what the next few generations will be like?
