Google Doodle, on Sunday, celebrated the 22nd birthday of the technology company with an animated illustration. An American multinational technology company, Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while both were pursing their PhD course at the Stanford University in California in September 1998.
Today’s special Google Doodle features the characters in an animated scenario wherein the letter G wears a hat and works on his laptop. The other alphabets of Google apart from ‘G’ appear in separate screens, all in the mood to celebrate. There is cake, and presents as well.
Google specializes in Internet-related services and products including software, hardware and a search engine. Since its rapid growth, Google is considered to be one of the Big Four technology companies along with Amazon, Apple and Microsoft.
Speaking of the moniker, Google Doodle said on its page, “The now world-famous moniker is a play on a mathematical term that arose out of an unassuming stroll around the year 1920. While walking in the woods of New Jersey, American mathematician Edward Kasner asked his young nephew Milton Sirotta to help him choose a name for a mind-boggling number: a 1 followed by 100 zeros. Milton’s reply? A googol! The term gained widespread visibility twenty years later with its inclusion in a 1940 book Kasner co-authored called ‘Mathematics and the Imagination’.”
The Google Doodle page also mentions that the word ‘Google’ was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary as a verb in 2006.
