The original “Google Mockers” inspiration, 1989 (click image for larger view)

“The word “google” captured my attention, especially associated with a nearby Los Angeles art gallery. It was so interesting to me that I later researched its origin, and learned that the word was associated with the mathematical term Googil, or 10 to the 100th power. I was fascinated by the concept long before the San Francisco Peninsula Company became so powerful, popular and famous. “  ~Laura Lengyel, 2015
