    "Google Doodle — a redesigned version of the Google home page logo — is the highest birthday honor the search engine can bestow, and today it goes to Jules Verne. In fact, the father of science fiction's 183rd birthday is being marked with one of the most interactive and elaborate Google Doodles yet.

    It's not only delightfully whimsical and beautifully designed, but it also has a little secret: It lets you navigate down 20,000 leagues under the sea. All you have to do is drag a lever with your mouse, tap your arrow keys, or — if you're viewing the site on an iPad, iPhone, or a laptop with a built-in accelerometer — tilt the screen."

    Very cool. I saw or read a story a while ago about the Google team that's working on these Google Doodles. Apparently it's a group of several full-time employees, and they sometimes create localized Doodles for certain countries.

    The Jules Verne doodle made the evening "news" here in the SF Bay Area.

    I use to archive them, I have a few hundred of them saved.

    Guess that was kinda pointless though, i'm sure someone else has a better archive and i've never done anything with mine.

    That's gotta be one of the most unusual and striking google logos I've seen.

    Recently had a few hours to walk through the Smithsonian a few weekends ago, with about 45 minutes spent at the Edison exhibit. Amazing what this man accomplished during a time when inventions were created not based on tools, but on pure inspiration. I liked seeing how he had a flare for the dramatic, putting on stunning light shows. It helped people realize that having turning on the lights in the dark can be the norm, and revolutionized the way we lived. Truly, a great American.
