Google Doodle John Venn's 180th b'day -- by artist Mike Dutton

Yes ... the post-comic con post here is overdue ... but had to salute today's amazing Google Doodle by artist Mike Dutton.

So much interactive fun .. and a great way to learn about the origins of the Venn diagram. Here's a quick bio on Venn from our pals at Wikipedia:

"John Venn(4 August 1834 – 4 April 1923) was an English logician and philosopher noted for introducing the Venn diagram, used in the fields of set theoryprobability, logic,statistics, and computer science."

Who knew logic could be so whimsical???
Once again, it took some clicking around to find the name of Mike Dutton --- the artist responsible for this doodle ... but here's more info on him, and this great link that shares his creative process behind this doodle.

Would be nice if Google would give their artists credit on the home page .. but I'm a dreamer, dreaming my dreamy dreams :)
