A Birthday Note

A Birthday Note

Dear Google,

I wish you a very very happy 14th birthday and thank you for the wonderful service you’ve been giving to us all for these 14 years. God knows how many students would have failed their lab exams, candidates their interviews, script kiddies their hacking plans and most of all, network admins would have missed a simple way to test their internet connection 😉

I thank you for igniting the Internet race, for becoming the first garage style Internet start-up that proved its might, for setting off the biggest industry boom in history, for making giants realize that “even kids working out of a garage, anywhere in the world, with a good idea can put them out of business.” And ultimately, for making the day to day lives of so many people a better experience.

You have innovated, in ways others couldn’t even have imagined, and come up with products and services that are simply… fantastic. You started out as a child, and your doodles and easter eggs tell us that that child still lives somewhere deep down in the your heart. And something tells me that that child is the reason you’re everyone’s favorite, he’s the reason you innovate, he’s the reason you enjoy creating something cool and Wowyy.

I realize that as you grow, that child will grow too.
And his childish pranks and funny activities will either die out or turn into routine activities that are done to preserve the tradition rather than for fun. I have only one request to you, don’t let that child die. Don’t lose the enjoyment and excitement that geeks get in creating things, that’s the reason things they create are cool.

With this message, I again wish you a very very happy birthday and thank you for these wonderful 14 years, and wish you all the best for the years to come… 🙂

— A Happy User
