Google gets nostalgic with garage buy
Goes back to its roots
Google has gone back to its roots and, in the style of HP, has bought the house and garage in which founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin first established the company. The company has not said how much it paid for the property.
Page and Brin rented the garage from Susan Wojcicki, then a friend of an ex of Brin’s, now vice president of product management at Google. She needed some money to help pay her mortgage and for five months Brin and Page made the garage their second home.
According to reports they also helped themselves to plenty of frozen pizza from Wojcicki’s freezer.
The garage has, apparently, already become something of a tourist attraction. Google asked reporters not to publish the house address because bus tours have already become a local nuisance.
