Today on Google in Switzerland, Honinbo Shusaku is the guest star !

http://www.google.com/doodles/honinbo-shusakus-185th-birthday

Funny enough, Switzerland is deemed worthy of this doodle (as well as Germany and Austria), but France is not !

I guess in the mind of the google engineers, Switzerland has a great culture of go ;) Any Go player work at their facility in Zurich or something ?[/url]

Not sure if it is true. I read somewhere it's because of D-Day that they took it out. I made a screenshot of the page early after Midnight and France was still in there at this time ...

D'après un article sur internet ( http://www.bfmtv.com/high-tech/google-consacre-un-doodle-a-honinbo-shusaku-meilleur-joueur-go-xixe-788169.html ) , le doodle a été mis par erreur par google.

"Ce vendredi 6 juin, en ce jour du 70ème anniversaire du Débarquement allié en Normandie, Google rend hommage à… Honinbo Shusaku"

Belle erreur, mais qui fait plaisir Very Happy
