Google Doodle Mystery Solved



Everytime I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

— H.G. Wells


Yes, it was all a lead up to commemorating the birth of Herbert George Wells.  And shame on you if you have to ask “Who is H.G. Wells?”:

Who is H.G. Wells? That’s what many Googlers are asking after an elaborate three weeks of mysterious logos on the Google homepage. But the company lifted the veil early this morning, explaining the series of UFO-inspired doodles.

I thought the quote was a nice tie-in with the usual cycling theme of this blog.

Happy 143rd Birthday, H.G.!
