Google put up a special birthday logo for themselves today, since today is Google's 8th birthday. Or is it? In last years post, we asked Didn't Google Just Have A Birthday? We quoted the When is Google's birthday? from Google's support page, which said back then:
Google's official birthday is September 7, 1998. If Google were a person, it would have started elementary school late last summer (around August 19), and today it would have just finished the first grade. In other words, we're just getting started. To discover more about Google's history, please visit http://www.google.com/intl/en/corporate/history.html. To learn about our mission, please see http://www.google.com/intl/en/corporate/index.html
Today, it says;
Google opened its doors in September 1998. The exact date when we celebrate our birthday has moved around over the years, depending on when people feel like having cake. For more on Google's history: http://www.google.com/corporate/history.html
So maybe today is Google's birthday and not on 9/7 or some other date. In any event, happy 8 Google!
Postscript: Google just blogged about the birthday here.
