Google Turns 15, and Takes A Stand On Important Issues [Like Most Teenagers Do]

This week month Google turned 15 and in exactly one month so will my daughter. 1998 was a year of great change and represents the birth of some of my biggest passions. I’ve watched them both grow and evolve over the years. Things were so much simpler back then – the world was a smaller place then and the newness of it all was so exciting. Like babies, Google did not come with an instruction book so there was a lot of trial and error in those early days, and late nights and early mornings. It was hard to understand if what I was doing was the right thing (mothering strategy and digital marketing strategy) because neither could talk to me, yet. And both were cute in the beginning but have change so much in the way they look having matured into things of beauty –from toothless smiles (image-less search results and websites) to bright colorful beings with multifaceted reactions to questions! There is an ability to anticipate my thoughts and to know how I am going to react based on past behaviors. They are definitely both mobile and social now too!
