Today, the world, the planet, the solar system and everyone else knows about Google and its two founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. But how did it go from being an idea of two grad school PhD students to a $150 billion company?

It’s funny you should ask because those smart folk at Online PhD have created this nifty interactive info graphic detailing the company’s rise to fame.
