What did the web do for business in 2014? We're proud that tools Googlers developed helped create $131 billion of economic activity across the US. Explore the state-by-state impact at g.co/EconomicImpact

Look how far we've come since 1998.
 
“It is impossible to overestimate the importance of Sergey’s and Larry’s paper in 1998. I cannot think of any scientific paper that has had such an impact on society.” 
-  Professor Dame Wendy Hall, International World Wide Web Conference Committee Chair

Congratulations to Google founders +Larry Page and +Sergey Brin, who have received the inaugural Seoul Test-of-Time Award at the 24th International World Wide Web Conference in Florence, Italy!

In 1998, Larry and Sergey introduced Google to the world with their research paper The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine (http://goo.gl/PCPZK4), presented at the 7th World Wide Conference in Brisbane, Australia.

The award was presented on May 22, and was accepted on behalf of our founders by Google Distinguished Scientist +Andrei Broder. See the #www2015  conference announcement at http://goo.gl/A71sFt.

Employing emotional intelligence. The initial curriculum was developed for Google’s engineers, and it focuses on what’s happening in the brain when you’re having certain thoughts and feelings, and encourages reflection rather than reaction. Learn more about it here: http://goo.gl/IUFqpB #workwednesday  
How one of Google's original engineers became a self-help guru, and why thousands are on waiting lists for his course.

Hands-on problem-solving. Google Code Jam is back, challenging programmers around the globe. And it takes many Googlers to keep things running smoothly. On #techtuesday  we'll feature engineers like Ian Tullis, who manually verified one of the sample cases for the Qual round's Infinite House of Pancakes problem.

What's your role on the Code Jam team?
I've written many problems for the 2015 global Code Jam and the Code Jam to I/O for Women. I also help to prepare input/output generators for some problems. A surprising amount of work goes into each problem beyond just coming up with the idea and writing the statement!

Why and when did you join the Google Code Jam team?
I participated in the internal Code Jam playtests in 2013 and 2014, and by the summer of 2014, I was just bursting with ideas and knew I had to contribute some problems of my own.

What was the first Code Jam you ever competed in?
2011. I missed winning a shirt by THIS much! (Actually, it wasn't that close -- I would have needed at least another Small.) Now, as part of the writing/testing team, I have more shirts than I know what to do with.

What's your favorite programming language?
I mostly program in Go at work, but I use Python to write puzzles (not just programming contest questions) and for other practical tasks. I need to get better at C++ so I can hold my own in Codeforces and TopCoder!

Here's just one of the big problems we're working to solve. #whatif  
 
What if we worked together to create a more accessible world for all?

Today we’re announcing $20 million in grant funding through the Google Impact Challenge: Disabilities. We’re challenging the thinkers, the doers, the builders to create technologies that can make a difference to the one billion people around the world living with a disability.

Together, let’s ask the right questions, find new answers, and build a better world, faster. Join us: http://get.google.com/disabilitiesimpactchallenge/
Let’s work together to help change this. The ‘Google Impact Challenge: Disabilities’ aims to expand opportunity and independence for people with disabilities. Click here to take part.

Very good idea,Probably a similar view may be taken for HoliDiwali celebrations for your campuses in the Indian subbcontinent, in an appropriate manner.
