Google Turns Their Back on Boy Scouts, No 100 Year Anniversary Logo

boy scouts anniversary100 years ago, yesterday, on February 8, 1910, the Boy Scouts was founded by William D. Boyce, Ernest Thompson Seton and Daniel Carter Beard. The Boy Scouts in America is a pretty significant foundation or club, with millions of members involved. 100 years is a significant milestone for any organization, which is why some people are upset with Google for not posting a special Google logo or Doodle.

We have several threads, one in Google Webmaster Help and a few in Google Web Search Help. If you read through some of these threads, you will see how upset and hurt some of these people are.

Today (February 8th, 2010) is the 100 year anniversary of Scouting in the United States. Started earlier in England, it was officially created in the US 100 years ago today. I was dissappointed not to see a Doodle, so thought I might could suggest one and (hopefully) someone could get one up this week anyway.

Google likes to automate everything, but one thing they cannot automate is the creation of these logos. I suspect Google simply forgot about this event and I am sure they are upset they have. I doubt it was intentional, because a 100 year landmark for the Boy Scouts, for even someone like me who was not in the Scouts - seems significant and worthy of a Google Doodle.
