George Boole was a genius mathematician, who was born in Lincolnshire and liked to wear bow ties. He was born on November 2nd, 1815... 200 years ago today. His claim to fame and legacy, and what makes him a cult icon today was 'Boolean Logic' which laid the foundation for the computer age.
In celebration of this 19th century math whiz and philosopher, Google did a Doodle (ok, it's pretty amazing) but we released the Data Bow Tie! Made in Canada by people who like maths, The Data will generate all sorts of compliments... true! It will make tea... false (sadly).
In order to know where you're going you have to know where you've been, and it almost seems like George Boole knew where we were going better than anyone else.
