He co-founded Google with Sergey Brin. Brin, a fellow Stanford Ph.D. student, would soon join Larry’s research project, nicknamed “BackRub.” The two authored a research paper titled “The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine”, which became one of the most downloaded scientific documents in the history of the Internet at the time.
Larry Page House | Home
On February 18, 2005, Larry bought a 9,000 square feet (840 m2) Spanish Colonial Revival architecture house in Palo Alto, California, designed by American artistic polymath Pedro Joseph de Lemos, a retired curator of the Stanford Art Museum and creator of the Carmel Art Institute, after the historic building had been on the market for years with an asking price of US$7.95 million.
In 2009, Larry started purchasing properties and tearing down homes adjacent to his home in Palo Alto to make room for a large ecohouse. Those existing buildings were “deconstructed” and the materials donated for reuse. Larry served with an arborist to replace some trees that were in poor health with others that used less water to maintain. He also applied for Green Point Certification, with points given for use of recycled and low or no-VOC (volatile organic compound) materials and for a roof garden with solar panels.
This house’s exterior features zinc cladding and plenty of windows, such as a wall of sliding-glass doors in the rear. It comprises eco-friendly elements like permeable paving in the parking court and a pervious path through the trees on the property. His 6,000-square-foot (560m²) house also observes other green home design features such as organic architecture building materials and low volatile organic compound paint.
Larry Page Google
In 1998, Brin and Larry incorporated Google, Inc. with the initial domain name of “Googol”, derived from a number that consists of one followed by one hundred zeros—representing the vast amount of data that the search engine was intended to explore. After inception, Larry appointed himself as CEO, while Brin, named Google’s co-founder, worked as Google’s president.
In June 2000, Google had indexed one billion Internet URLs (Uniform Resource Locators), making it the most comprehensive search engine on the Web at the time. This company cited NEC Research Institute data in its June 26 press release, stating that “there are more than 1 billion web pages online today”, with Google “providing access to 560 million full-text indexed web pages and 500 million partially indexed URLs.”
During Larry’s first tenure as CEO, he embarked on an attempt to fire all of Google’s project managers in 2001. His plan involved all of Google’s engineers reporting to a VP of engineering, who would then report directly to him—Page explained that he didn’t like non-engineers supervising engineers because of their limited technical knowledge.
After a January 2011 announcement, Larry officially became the chief executive of Google on April 4, 2011, while Schmidt stepped down to become executive chairman. During this time, Google had more than $180 billion market capitalization and over 24,000 employees. Reporter Max Nisen described the decade prior to Larry’s second appointment as Google’s CEO as he “lost decade” saying that while he exerted important influence at Google through product development and other operations, he became increasingly disconnected and less responsive over time. Larry announced the end of his tenure as CEO on January 20, 2011, jokingly tweeting on Twitter: “Adult-supervision no longer needed.”
