It’s Charles Darwin Day, on Google too. See the new logo?
I was reading Barry Schwartz’s comment at Search Engine Land about Google going with Darwin instead of Abraham Lincoln and wondering to myself how could anyone possibly even consider Abraham Lincoln in the same league as Charles Darwin, the man who thought up evolution, discovered our connection with the beasts and who led others to discover the very nature of our conection with the planet, the sea and it’s continents.
It is also Charles Darwin’s birthday and I guess Darwin, the father of evolution, is more important than one of the most important US Presidents of all time, Abraham Lincoln.
There is no contest between these two guys. One is a thought leading genius who stood against the establishment and the other is a guy who thought slavery was wrong (genius) and stopped Britain inserting it’s foot in the US’s arse in 1861.
