Google Apologises Over Lack of D-Day Doodle

You know, this is always going to be a problem when trying honour people and events. Someone's going to lose out. But, this time, it really was a blunder.

Google has said its Google Doodle honouring a Japanese Go player on the 70th anniversary of D-Day was uploaded in error and issued an apology.

The Doodle for June 6 originally featured a stylised image of Honinbo Shusaku, a professional player of the traditional Chinese game Go, and was displayed on Google.co.uk. Google Apologises Over Lack of D-Day Doodle [telegraph.co.uk]

Looks like the muppets in Google are making a lot of "blunders" these days. It is ironic given how Google was so thoroughly beaten in the Chinese market.

google.uk, yeah, that's a blunder. But what did the other googles show? Asians might legimately take the position that a focus on D-Day implies that only the European theatre was important. And, last I checked, Go originated in China.

Wonder has Google outsourced everything including having a clue?
