On the 4th of September in 1998, a company called Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, two students at Stanford University. They’d created a search engine as a research project, believing that they could improve search results by analysing the relationships between websites rather than simply counting how many times the search term appeared on any given page. They were right.

Google – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Page and Brin originally nicknamed their new search engine “BackRub”, because the system checked backlinks to estimate the importance of a site. Eventually, they changed the name to Google, originating from a misspelling of the word “googol”, the number one followed by one hundred zeros, which was meant to signify the amount of information the search engine was to handle. Originally, Google ran under the Stanford University website, with the domain google.stanford.edu. The domain google.com was registered on September 15, 1997, and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998, at a friend’s garage in Menlo Park, California.

Do you think we should change our name to SatCsenes? Or maybe SatSeenz! We’ll all be millionaires by the end of the decade!

Meanwhile, I won’t make you search. All of these great scenes from Saturday were taken on the 4th of September in 2010:
