Google began in March 1996 as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Ph.D. students at Stanford[1] working on the Stanford Digital Library Project (SDLP).

Googleplex, Google Inc’s headquarter complex located in Mountain View California, offers massages, gourmet food, gym, doctors and even barbers all within the Googleplex. Google’s recruitment videos on YouTube seem to portray the Googleplex as a utopia.
