Fifteen years ago, on this day, I joined a small startup called Google; and here I am, fifteen years later, enjoying every moment of this beautiful journey that I started with Google on Nov 28, 2000.

A lot has changed in the last fifteen years, Google has grown up a lot, and I have experienced tremendous personal growth. But one thing that has not changed, is the Google mission: to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. This mission is one of the things that keeps me so engaged at Google. I feel proud to come in everyday knowing that what I will do will improve the lives of over a Billion people, and that is exactly what my employer wants me to do.

The second reason that has kept me at Google, in fact has made the last fifteen years the best professional ride anyone could every experience is my wonderful colleagues at Google. The people at Google are just amazing, and they are not just amazing in their respective areas, they are some of the most amazing human beings you will ever meet. I have made friends at Google that will last a lifetime, and that is the true wealth I've accumulated in my life.

On a personal note, when I joined Google, my two kids were four years old and six months old. Even though I had a few jobs before coming to Google, my kids only remember their Dad as a Googler.

Today... I am feeling Thankful.

One more reason to be certain that +Google Cloud Platform​ has the world's best infrastructure: while bragging about their network, a competitor shows images of Google's network.  (Happened last week, see screen capture below.) Thanks for the acknowledgment, +Amazon Web Services​! But next time please show our logo on the slide :-)

Shout-out to +Timothy Prickett Morgan​ for noticing this first.
