Google celebrates the 50th anniversary of Legos

Who knew that Legos played such an important part in the history of Google?

Google’s Doodle team embraced the idea of a Lego Doodle because of the
special role Lego building has played in Google’s 10-year history. Google
co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, used the bricks as the
external low-cost and expandable casing for 10 4-GigaByte hard disks
when they were busy developing the Google search engine.  The original
server casing still exists and is on display as part of an exhibition
chronicling 80 years of computing machines at Stanford University in
California’s Silicon Valley.
