That’s the question the students greeted me with when I came into work this morning. They were gathered around a computer looking at today’s Google Doodle…
The doodle celebrates the inventor of the Bunsen burner, Robert Bunsen, on what would have been his 200th birthday. The link goes to Bunsen’s Wikipedia page, where it says his birthday was yesterday. The Mail online reports the birthday is today. Search Engine Land’s Barry Schwartz sides with Wikipedia.
Clickthrough to Google for the actual animated and interactive version. Despite two youtube videos (below) illustrating how the interactivity works, I’m not seeing it (though I did tell the students I can see the letters spelling out “Google”).
