The day Google became the Center of the World is February 12th, 2007. Don’t look for a product announcement, or breaking through another revenue barrier though… it’s something a lot simpler.. yet symbolic.
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, previously in Los Altos, now in Pleasanton – small towns people outside the region wouldn’t know. So whenever I am asked where I live, the obvious explanation is “it’s x miles from San Francisco”.
It all changed on 2/12/07, when Aaron Stanton, the guy who decided he just *had to* be heard by Google arrived in San Francisco. He is staying at a friends’s in San .. .what? In San Francisco, about 40 minutes outside of Mountain View.
Mountain View The Googleplex has become the Center of the World.
(P.S. try entering Googleplex in Google Maps )
