“Hmm, I’m not sure…Google it!” is a phrase I utter probably on a daily basis. Obviously, as a writer for GeekMom, I’m a nerd, a geek, a brainiac; what ever you want to call it and as such I tend to be the go-to gal for everyone in my office whenever they have a question. For instance,
“What’s that thing called that the Monopoly guy wears on one eye?”
“Told you she’d know.”
But I’m not omnipotent and so when I’m stumped I go to Google.
Today, my favorite search engine (and so much more) becomes a teenager. Google was founded in a basement in California in 1998 and 13 years later it’s the super-company it is today. By the age of 13 I cut my own hair, wore a bicycle chain bracelet and way too much glitter on my face. At the age of 13 Google has brought forth Android-powered phones, Google+, Gmail, Google Chrome, Google Maps and a slew of other things. At this rate I wouldn’t be surprised if they took over the world one day. And as long as they stick to their unofficial motto “Don’t be evil,” that’ll be just fine by me.
