Google has a special logo up on the Google home page today. The Google logo is made up of legos, to celebrate Lego’s 50 year birthday.
Google’s culture has always had a special place for Lego. Google’s first servers were “modded” up with Legos. The Google founders have admitted to having a special “fondness” towards Legos, and we all know that computer geeks can’t get enough of their legos. Google has Lego art in their offices. Lego fans have built Google logos in Lego, and so have Googlers themselves.
If you visit Google.com, you will see the logo. You won’t see it after you do a search on Google, so there won’t be a small Google lego logo (or at least not at the time I am writing this). Google UK has the logo, and so do Google France, Google Mexico, Google Israel, and Google Denmark. In fact, it appears all Google country-specific sites may have the special logo up for the day. That doesn’t happen with all special logos, so this is truly an international celebration!
