To me, the Google Doodle that honors Zipper inventor Gideon Sundback today, is the best one yet.

The separatable fastener wasn't going much of anywhere until it was used by B.F.Goodrich in Akron on a new type of overshoe that made them quick and easier to put on one-handed. BFG named them Zippers becasue of that and they were a runaway bestseller. Even when I was growing up the style of rubber boot was still called "Zips." Todya the Zips name carries on as the team name for the University of Akron.....The Zips!

Friend of mine worked for Firestone in Brentford UK. They had a wonderful spoof of the Lord's Prayer going round the office, which I can only remember the start of.

Our Father who art in Akron
Harvey be thy name.

At that time the company president was called Harvey Firestone, I believe.

The zipper is a great example of how the success of a technological innovation can be spurred by coining a simple, catchy and appropriate name for it.

For those of a technical inclination, you oughta see the **source code** for that zipper trick! Hit 'ctrl-U' and be amazed!

Very clever. I had thought it was a thermometer up until reading this thread
This side of the Atlantic we still just say "zip", which sounds more onomatopoeic than "zipper". I suppose you say "zipper" in the US to avoid confusion with the "zip" in your zip codes. No I didn't mean for you to pull your pants down, Hortense; I just wanted to get your address right.

Is the Google Doodle supposed to move or unzip? I've tried clicking on it but nothing happens!

Put the cursor on the slider it becomes a hand. Hold left mouse button and you can drag the zip up and down to reveal the page "behind"

neat

No, it doesn't do anything. A small black circle with a bar through it appears, but nothing unzips. I suspect you're teasing me!

geek.com announces that the Google Doodle for Friday and Saturday honors Star Trek and its 46th anniversary.
It will be at google.com through Saturday. Afterwards, you can see it at the Google Doodle Archive

Apparently, the doodles in the Google Doodle Archive are not animated, which is a shame. I started this thread in April to point out the Doodle for Gideon Sundback's 132nd Birthday. Sundback invented the zipper, so the Doodle was an animated zipper. Alas, it is animated no more.

A few of them are still animated. Not Gideon Sundback's though.

Jane Goodall has always been one of the people I have most admired, from the time I was old enough to read about her in National Geographic. I am delighted with the Google Doodle for Earth Day this year!
