Sept 7, 2008 :: Google 10 years

The home where Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin rented the garage in 1998 to set up Google in Menlo Park, California. Reportedly, Google purchased the 1,900 square foot house where they used to rent out the garage from Susan Wojcicki for $1,700 (£961) a month Photograph: Justin Sullivan/Getty Images It all began in the summer of 1995, when Larry Page and Sergey Brin met at Stanford University (Brin showed Page around the school). The two students founded Google - named after googol, the term for 1 followed by 100 zeros - a year later in a suburban garage. It was incorporated on September 7 1998 - which became Google's birthday.
