Not that i'm used to the name "Google" but "BackRub" is really fail. Larry Page (22) and Sergey Brin (21) met at Stanford in 1995 to begin a collaboration for a new search engine, but according to some accounts they disagree about almost everything during the first meetings. Eventually, in 1996 began their collaboration on this new search engine called "BackRub", which originally was hosted on Stanford servers. BackRub operated for more than a year and began consuming too much bandwidth. In 1997, the search engine was renamed to "Google", a play on the word "googol" a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros.
