Googles Inventors Corner

Check Out This Virtual Tour of the Garage Where Google Started

Google is 20 years old today, and to celebrate Google Maps added the garage where the company was founded to Street View. You can check it out right now.

You’ll be flooded with 90s nostalgia, including a bunch of CRT monitors. Keep exploring the house and you’ll find more rooms, and lots of little details.

You might also notice that the office is remarkably neat for a workspace shared by college students. That’s because this is a recreation of the original workspace, not an exact replica, as proven by the following video (watch all the way through for the ending, it’s worth it).

From the blog post announcing the virtual tour:

As you walk through the garage’s side door, you’ll note a familiar Search box on an old “CRT” computer monitor held up by a wooden workhorse table with yellow legs. Larry and Sergey were particularly thrilled that use of the washing machine and dryer was included in their rent.

As you chase cables that scramble haphazardly down the hallway, you’ll find a bedroom (ahem, “main office”) with a whiteboard that reads “Google’s Worldwide Headquarters” in black text. On another whiteboard, you’ll see a cheeky homage to Google’s logo update back in 1998. Doesn’t the delightful wallpaper remind you of tea at your grandparents’ place?

This isn’t the only nostalgia Google is putting out today. Here’s a few more highlights:

Baby Gets A Break

Police Officer Insists on Breastfeeding Hungry, ‘Dirty’ Baby, Gets Promoted

This Argentinian police officer is being praised for her maternal kindness after she was seen breastfeeding a hungry crying baby at a hospital.

Officer Celeste Jaqueline Ayala was working as a guard at the Sor Maria Ludovica children’s hospital in Buenos Aires when she heard an infant crying.

When she ran to find the source of the wailing, she found that the cries were coming from a baby boy who had been taken into custody by police.

Since the hospital staff already had their hands full with other patients, Ayala asked if she could hold and feed the baby.

Despite the boy being described by the employees as “dirty and smelly”, the officer insisted on helping the infant anyway.

“I noticed that he was hungry, as he was putting his hand into his mouth, so I asked to hug him and breastfeed him,” Ayala told Cronica of her deed. “It was a sad moment, it broke my soul seeing him like this.”

As she lovingly cradled the baby, an onlooker named Marcos Heredia snapped a photo of the powerful moment and posted it to social media where it has since been shared thousands of times. The officer didn’t mind the exposure at all, and in the end it benefitted her, too.

“I want to make public this great gesture of love that you had today with that baby,” wrote Heredia. “You did not care about the dirt and the smell as the professional gentlemen of the hospital said. Things like that are not seen every day.”

The security department for which Ayala works made a Twitter post earlier this week saying that – in light of her kindness and integrity – they promoted her from officer to sergeant, saying that she was the kind of “police we’re proud of” and “the police we want.”

Recycling News Isn’t Always Good

Why Has American Entrepreneurship Dropped? Malcolm Gladwell Blames Agreeableness

Why I Spend $16,302 Each Month Producing Content That Google Won’t Rank

These days, Malcolm Gladwell is all about disagreeableness.

In conversation with Carlos Watson at OZY Fest on Sunday, Gladwell lauded the trait as a key component of an entrepreneurial spirit. In the psychological context, disagreeableness or agreeableness is the extent to which one requires the approval of a group.

“One of the weird counterintuitive facts about the present day is that entrepreneurship in this country is at a historic low, relative to the last 50 years or so,” Gladwell says on the OZY stage. “The rate of new-business formation in America right now is as low as it’s been since the 1970s.”

The Future of SEO: It’s Not What You’re Expecting

According to research from The Kauffman Foundation, the number of companies younger than one year dropped by nearly 44% between 1978 and 2012. This slump is affecting every industry, even those that the public perceives to be thriving. Despite the incredible technological strides made in the last few decades, new-business formation is dropping across the board. But why? Gladwell thinks it’s because our younger generations are less likely to disregard the suggestions and opinions of their peers.

“Is it possible we are raising a generation of people who are less disagreeable than previous generations? That the effect of all the things we’ve done in good faith to make young people much more aware of and solicitous of each other’s feelings has had the paradoxical effect of making it harder for them to try something truly crazy and weird and innovative?”

How To Use Google Images to Drive E-commerce Sales Before Your Competitors Catch On

According to the Small Business Administration, research shows that young people are interested in starting new businesses. But interest isn’t enough. There are more factors against Americans trying to be entrepreneurs than just agreeableness. Gladwell sees opportunity, whether it comes in the form of a bank loan or a good education without debilitating student debt, to be bestowed on a select few.

MORE FROM FORBES

“The consequence of the rhetoric used to describe success is that we come to think of the qualities of those successful few as being incredibly rare. What’s rare is the resources and the opportunities these people had access to,” says Gladwell. “But the underlying qualities are common. … I think there should be a rule that one day a week, we just don’t talk about billionaires.’

Gladwell notably considers himself to be agreeable, despite his disputatious takes and success as both an innovative author and a podcaster. His podcast Revisionist History, which recently wrapped on season three and consistently reaches the top of the charts, is a force of disruption in a rapidly changing industry. In 2017, 48 million people listened to podcasts weekly and podcasting revenues are growing at double-digit rates. Revisionist History looks at the past to unsettle culture schemas—but Gladwell also wants to ensure a brief respite from current events.

“I don’t make news with my podcast. I’m in the edutainment business,” says Gladwell. “I’m the antidote to the 24-hour news cycle.”
