The Original Google Storage


In 1996, Larry Page and Sergey Brin were Stanford University graduate students, working on their Digital Library Project, later known as Google. They needed a lot of storage, and the largest hard disk available was 4 gigabytes. So they connected ten of them together and built their own 40GB drive, in a case made of of Legos. It is now on display at the Stanford University Museum. Link -via the Presurfer

Nor will you ever understand true happiness. God put legos on earth so that men could become like tiny gods. We create, destroy and rebuild as we see fit. I personally feel that legos are as close to divinity as anything made by the hands of man can be.

Cheeseduck- I thought the same. I was always drawn to the Google logo and I'm a lifetime fan of Legos (and Duplos and Tycos). Now it all makes sense!

Agreed, firsting comments is like being proud to be the first to show up at a party. Sure, you beat the rush, but it usually just means you have no life.
