Googling Google

Back in 2005, Lesley Stahl profiled Google and its co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page

For this week's Rewind, 60 Minutes Overtime revisits ancient Internet history: 2005. DROID and the iPhone were just twinkles in some engineer's eye; Facebook was less than a year old and Gmail was still in Beta.

We found Lesley Stahl's report on Google to be fascinating. And not just because we work at 60 Minutes. The story is a snapshot that shows how fast-moving the Internet landscape really is.

Back then, Microsoft had a wary eye on Google. Today, Google is the giant, casting glances at its upstart rival Facebook. Will Google and Facebook co-exist peacefully? What might the NEXT five years bring? We want to hear what you think.
