Google Joins Forces with Fairfax

02 Jun 2009

Google Australia opened their new Pyrmont headquarters in Sydney, with a staff of over 350 this week.

The Governor General, Ms Quentin Bryce AC officially opened the new headquarters.


The Governor General commended Google Australia on their contribution to Australia’s economy, culture and progress: “You elicit the best of Australian ingenuity – what has always defined and distinguished us. You provide space and, importantly, time, for Australian ideas to emerge, develop, and proliferate.”

 

To further enhance the Australian developments Google has joined forces with Fairfax Media to offer digitalised archival copies of Fairfax publication such as the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age affording Australians access to news stories dating back to the 1800s and early 1900’s through Google News and Google Search free of charge.

 

Lisa Hagenmaier, group syndication manager, Fairfax Media, said: “The project to digitise and make searchable our archived content will help people to more easily experience and appreciate our journalistic heritage - letting them see newspapers exactly as they were first printed, with original headlines and images.”

 

Karim Temsamani, General Manager of Google Australia and New Zealand, reminded the gathering of how Google Australia started in 2002 with a single employee selling AdWords from her loungeroom.

 

Google Australia’s Head of Engineering, Alan Noble added: “There’s phenomenal computer science talent in Australia, so we’re investing in the ecosystem here.”
