Goggle Every Day

Do you remember the burning man festival?  This is a yearly event in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.  It is a radical movement based on 10 principles, such as communal effort, civic responsibility, and radicalism - self-reliance, self-expression and inclusion.  

What does this have to do with Google?  I though I'd find out about the daily theme.  I guessed it is a great accomplishment in one of the largest companies in the world to have one's theme chosen.  How does it work? 

The very first google doodle appeared in honour of the Burning Man Festival of 1998, and was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed.  

This has evolved over time into a major activity with a Google Doodler team, and competitions in various countries. The history of the google doodle is available on Wikipedia here.

I am looking forward to the Canada Day google this year with the 150th birthday.  You can see the Canada Day google doodles here.

Last week Queen Street West had a window display that got my camera's attention.
