Google Doodles - 0 views

  •  
    Just thought I would add this page about controversial Google doodles! Its interesting which ones were viewed as controversial.
  •  
    Good one, Adam. I meant to ask Laura and forgot whether the doodles are always the same in every country, and this gallery shows that they aren't. Which makes a lot of sense. The Miró one is interesting, too -- the fact that the artist's heirs felt ripped off, even though it was original artwork in the *style* of Miró rather than anything actually copied from a digital version of Miró.

    AP Late this month, Google went "dark" in terms of providing publishers with free information on which words led people searching in Google to click on their sites. The move came as Google seeks to reassure users following the NSA/PRISM domestic surveillance scandal.
  •  
    Wow, I hadn't even heard about that, Emily. Terrific story. That's a bummer, though -- I use Google Analytics on some of my sites, though I probably should make more use of it, and it was always interesting to see what keywords people were using to get to my site. Sometimes the keywords were weird.
