Hello, I’m Larry Page, founder of Google. I want to give you my sample of autobiography.
I was born on March 26, 1973 in East Lansing, Michigan. Both of my parents were involved in computer sciences: my father Dr. Carl Victor Page was a “pioneer in computer science and artificial intelligence”, a computer science professor of Michigan State University and my mother Gloria Page taught computer programming at Michigan State University.
I always had a keen interest in computers while growing up and was encouraged by my father.I was the first kid in my school to turn in an assignment from a word processor.
From 1975 to 1979 I attended the Okemos Montessori School, and graduated from East Lansing High School in 1991. I got a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering from the University of Michigan and a Masters in Computer Science from Stanford. While studying in Stanford University I met Sergey Brin.
Brin and I began work on a project called “The anatomy of a large-scale hypertextual web search engine” or simply “The anatomy of a search engine”. Our challenge was to crawl the web efficiently and provide more relevant results than the search engines that were available at that time. So, we created a new search engine named Google. The project relied on the PageRank technology that we developed.
Google search engine was started in 1998. In September 1998 Google Inc was opened in Menlo Park, California and grew rapidly every year since its beginning. We started with our own funds, and of our friends and family but the site quickly outgrew our own available resources. We eventually received private investments through Stanford to fund the rapid growth of up to 20% per month.
Google became a public company on August 19, 2004, trading on the NASDAQ stock exchange as GOOG.
I became a production president in 2001. Brin and I managed the company up until it reached more than 200 employees in 2001, when we handed over the CEO position to Dr. Eric Schmidt. I continued to play an important role in running the company with Schmidt and Brin.
Over the next few years headed by Sergey and me Google made many innovations and added to its list of products and employees (nearly 5000 by 2006). By October 2004 Google announced our first quarterly results as a public offered company, with record revenues of $805.9 million. As of 2005 I had worth US$12 billion and was sixteenth in Forbes 400 list, making me the 27th richest person in the world.
By the end of 2006, Google had over 10,000 employees and annual revenues well over $10 billion. In 2007 and 2008, Fortune magazine ranked Google as the best company in the world to work for. In recent years, Google has introduced a number of popular new services and applications, including a toolbar that allows users to perform searches from their desktops, without visiting the Google Web site.
I married Lucinda Southworth at Richard Branson’s Caribbean island, Necker Island in 2007. Southworth is a research scientist and sister of actress and model Carrie Southworth.
Also there are some other interests besides Google project. I am an active investor in alternative energy companies, such as Tesla Motors. I continue to be committed to renewable energy technolog. Brin and I are the executive producers of the 2007 film Broken Arrows and so on.
So, this is my life…
