We all know the Valley lore around garages. If you read my book, you know Google’s garage was owned by Susan Wojcicki, who went on to work at Google, and whose sister ended up marrying Sergey. Here’s an USA Today story about the garage. From it:
After earning her MBA in 1998, Wojcicki bought 232 Santa Margarita Ave. for about $600,000. She rented the garage to two Stanford students for $1,700 a month to help with the mortgage. The renters: no ordinary slackers, but the Google Guys, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who incubated Google(GOOG) right there.
