Who is Gideon Sundback?

Anyone who has been on Google this morning should be able to answer this question.

This morning’s Google doodle is a giant zipper running down the middle of the screen to celebrate the birthday of Gideon Sundback. A bit random until you hear that he is the engineer most commonly associated with the development of the zip!

They say you learn something every day and I wonder how many thousands of people now know who Gideon Sundback is. Surely if you manage the PR for an event or the celebration of a date Google Doodles has to be the number one target. Has anyone ever tried to get in touch with them or had any success with pitching an idea?
