Happy 11th Birthday Google
Today is Google’s 11th birthday and to celebrate, the company has changed its logo accordingly and turned the letter “L” into the number 11. I’ve been thinking about the past 11 years online and how much things have changed. We have seen so much technology, web services, new products, and other advances (and failures) it is almost unreal. Congratulations to Google for being at the forefront of technology and I hope to see them continue to lead and innovate into the future.
So in honor of Google’s 11th birthday, I have compiled a list (in no particular order or relevance) of 11 things that have occurred in my life (related to technology and not) over the past 11 years. I also want to encourage you to leave a list of 11 things (or as many as you can think of) that have happened to you over the past 11 years, so feel free to do that in the comments.
