10 years ago, Google was founded in a garage in California. Today, it is most unlikely that you would browse the Web and not use a Google product or service on every visit. The rise of the company has been extraordinary - tomes of literature are available on this subject - and like all great businesses, it is based on the simplest of thoughts. The thirst for knowledge, the desire for information and the quickest way to find it drives every individual on the planet. What started as a simple Websearch tool has become a gargantuan network that many complain invades personal (and confidential) space. Perhaps it does. But think back and imagine if outstanding engineers like Visvesarayya or architects like Corbusier and Lutyens had Google maps at their disposal - the mind goggles!
