Happy 13th B-Day Google - on 9/4/11 Google became a teen!

Surprise to Google who turned 13 years old today (9/4/2011). And I am surprised that Google didn't post its very own Happy 13 B-Day doodle! Since I couldn't find one on the internet, I thought you'd enjoy my "Google Rocks 13th B-Day" doodle rendition (below).
So let's all celebrate the day Google became a teen. Ever since Google was born (September 4, 1998), there have been whirlwinds of internet momentum, controversy, and innovation. Google rocks and doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon.
To think it took Larry Page and Sergey Brin less than 2 years to incorporate Google -- in 1996, both were PhD students at Stanford University, working on a research project when Yahoo! and AOL were the major search engines.

Thirteen years later Google has embarked on hundreds, if not thousands of innovations, ventures and acquisitions. Below is a brief timeline of my most notable Google milestones (note clicking on the table below, and then once again, will enlarge for viewing):
