Ah, the feelgood music of our grandparents. Too few of these kind of songs today, originally by Joni Mitchell but I grew up with this version

World Wonders, a new project from the Google Cultural Institute, lets you take a virtual journey to more than 130 world heritage sites across the globe—like Stonehenge, the Palace and Garden of Versailles, temples of ancient Kyoto or The White City of Tel-Aviv. You can explore each site using Street View, and watch related videos or browse photos and 3D models for more information.

Start exploring the World Wonders Project now: and share your favorite places you’ve visited using the hashtag #worldwonders.

Not only is it St. George's Day, it's also the 30th anniversary of the ZX Spectrum, an 8-bit personal computer released in the U.K. in 1982. Geeks that we are, the doodle team decided to create a doodle to mark both occasions. You can see it below (and on for a few more hours).

The ZX Spectrum used only a 15-color palette, with no more than two colors (or any light/dark hue pairs) in any 8-pixel square, so our 256x192-pixel doodle adheres to those constraints. How do we know for sure? A UX designer working with the doodles team wrote a program to validate that the doodle was complying with the rules. It took a surprising 29 revisions to get it right!

Hver segir að skák sé ekki spennandi!
I haven't played chess in a while now, but if you know the rules to the game you owe it to yourself to watch this 1994 Smirin vs Anand blitz masterpiece.

No joke, I was getting physically anxious for a while there (you'll understand when you get see it). And I may or may not have fist pumped at the end. Watch and see.
