Early Life of the Master of Google
Lawrence “Larry” Page was born on March 23rd, 1973 in East Lansing, Michigan. His parents, Carl Vincent Page Sr. and Gloria Page were professors in computer science at Michigan State University; his father had earned a degree from the University of Michigan in 1965 and he had been described as a “pioneer in computer and artificial intelligence” by BBC reporter Will Smale. Page’s childhood was thus obviously spent in the midst of a scientific environment, and due to the attentive upbringing by his parents, he grew up to be innovative and creative. He was an avid reader and he played the saxophone, influencing his work on search engines years later due to the obsession over time.
Page attended the Okemos Montessori School (now renamed as the Montessori Radmoor) in Okemos, Michigan from 1975 to 1979 and he graduated from East Lansing High School in 1991. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering from the University of Michigan, with honors, and a Master of Science degree in computer engineering from Stanford University.
Career Growth & Milestones of Lary Page
After enrolling in the Ph.D. program for computer science at Stanford University, Page was is a search of a dissertation and he considered writing about the mathematical properties of the World Wide Web, understanding its link structure to a super graph. He focused on the issue of finding out web pages link to a given page, considering the number and the nature of such backlinks as valuable information for that page- the role of citations in academic publishing would also be related to the research. At this time, he met Sergei Brin, a fellow research scholar, who became interested in Page’s research work. They developed a prototype crawler called BackRub It developed into a search engine soon among the Stanford University servers and it went online on the Internet in August 1996.
Larry Page and Sergei Brin incorporated Google in a leased garage in early 1998, and the company went on to create profits.
