Happy Birthday Google

8 September, 2004 9:28 AM

I'd like to wish Google a happy 6th Birthday. I love Google - it is rare that a company has such a massive impact so quickly. It is hard to imagine a world without Google (well it is for me) - they have really achieved do much in their 6 years - I find it difficult to believe that they've come so far so quickly.

When they first started I remembered thinking that their search engine was pretty cool - but I had no idea how it (and their other services) would change the way I use the internet - and ultimately earn an income.

So the question remains - what does one buy an international successful business that seems to have everything for their birthday?



I remember years ago while I was still in China, and was very poor. I met an Australian guy who invited me to his birthday party. I was asking myself the same question, he looked very rich to me at that time and I just couldn't afford or thought of something as a birthday present. I've only very briefly met him once. Then I thought, I'll just buy him a card, and I gave him a word on the card. As a result he liked that word, and two months later we were married.

So how long until Google is viewed as another Microsoft (e.g., and evil monopoly)? They are, after all, the 900 pound gorilla of web searching.
