Sometimes, one year in our lives stands out from all the others. I don't mean just an exceptional year. I mean a truly exceptional year. The kind that changes your life, sets it on a new direction. The kind that has repurcussions for the rest of your life. 1998 was just such a year for me. A lot of stuff happened that year. Good stuff, not so good stuff, truly amazing stuff. Stuff that lives with me to this day.
A lot of other stuff happened in 1998. Including some stuff in Susan Wojcicki's garage. But today is my birthday, so good reason to think about the stuff that happened in 1998 that played a big part in me being who I am today.
