President Jimmy Carter gave the welcoming remarks for Google Atlanta’s Open House Thursday. President Carter stated that his life has been transformed by Google, and that it would be hard to find many people in the developed world for whom that statement isn’t true. He gave a specific example of researching the Revolutionary War for one of the books he authored – his old habit of checking out 50 books at a time from the library has now been replaced by Google and he no longer knows the librarians’ names. President Carter noted that Google has brought together and benefited the whole world in a real – not theoretical — way. A longtime friend of Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, Carter said he’s filled with admiration for the organization and is proud to call himself a Googler.
