Google is celebrating their 8th birthday today.

Unbelievable to think that Google has only been around 8 years.

Recap of what they have accomplished:

  • created a household name
  • Google has been recognized as a verb (as in to google something)
  • everyone involved in the beginning is now super rich
  • their stock became a stock market phenomenon
  • taking the web AJAX arena by storm
  • pushed the limits with web email
  • one of the first great image searches available
  • has a video service that rivals youtube
  • one of the best desktop searches available
  • browser toolbar is great
  • great advertising model with Adsense and Adwords
  • Took KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) to a new level

Congrats Google
