Jennifer Lopez at the Grammy Awards 2020

Jennifer Lopez wore a jungle print dress, designed by Donatella Versace, to the Grammy Awards in February of 2000.  Not only was it the most popular search Google had seen up to that time, but it nearly broke the internet. But in those days, results of a Google search brought up only hypertext links! The Google search folks understood what people wanted when they searched was the picture of J. Lo. in the dress, not a set of links – and the inspiration for Google Images was born.

Google Images launched on July 12, 2001.  Who would have guessed the origin of an amazing technological innovation!  But then who would have guessed when Neil Armstrong took that first step on the moon, the whole world would be able to watch on live television!!!
