I love the idea of the Google Doodle – an some days I love it in practice too. Today is one of those days.

44 years ago today one of the most important innovations in Hip Hop was introduced – the break. This lead to people being able to dance longer and to the term breakdancing.

To celebrate this significant happening google have not only a doodle, but a video explaining the history AND a chance for you to play at being a DJ. (win)

Happy Friday everyone. Go play with the doodle here.    If you are like me and are fascinated by how the clever Google Doodles are created, and the work that goes into one like this, then dance on over to Designboom where they have a great analysis.
