What is Doodle?
The word “Doodle” (doodle) in translation from English means “Doodle”. The first Doodle was invented by Google founders in honor of the Festival Burning man in 1998. It was developed by Larry page and Sergey Brin to notify users they are not in the workplace. In case, if the search server will not work and phone will not respond. Supposedly, the developers went to the festival.
Later, logos started to alert users to the search engines about holidays, birthdays of great people who have made their contribution to history and other important events. And for the starting pages of the different States Doodle can be individual.
