I just got this email from my friend Wendie:
selling in its secondary offering announced today.
tell me what it reminds you of.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – August 18, 2005 – Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG) announced today that it has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a proposed public offering by the company of 14,159,265 shares of Class A common stock.
It’s as easy as Pi (also known as ), which is 3. 14159265…
Sometimes, ya’ just gotta love Google.
Blogger’s addendum: I almost forgot. The number of shares shouldn’t be a surprise. After all, Google is named after a number. A “googol” is 1 followed by 100 zeros.
