Hello. I’m abroad now till the end of May. Henrietta is kindly coming to stay and look after Bolly. See you in June.
Happy 13th Birthday Google.
Dating from 1998, Google’s actually quite elderly in internet terms. But it’s not as old as Yahoo (16) which dates from January 16 1995.
Other internet phenomena such as Spotify (3) and Audioboo (2) are mere toddlers.
As for their cousins –
Facebook is 7 (4 February 2004)
YouTube is 6 (February 14 2005) and
that little whippersnapper Twitter is 5 (March 21 2006)
