After watching the video in class, the one thing that really stood out to me was how many people passed up the idea of Google. No one saw the potential. It makes me laugh because now all of those people are kicking themselves in the butt after seeing Google take off the way it did. And to know that the idea of Google was started by two Stanford grad students, one being 19 years old! It was really interesting to see how Yahoo, Excite and Google all got started. I personally prefer Google over Yahoo because, as someone else mentioned on their blog post, it is a whole lot less cluttered and way more easier to navigate.
