It's in braille, because it's Louis Braille's birthday today! Google often changes their logo to reflect important things like this. Click on the logo and it gives you a google search with terms describing the logo.

Also, if you leave your cursor over hte logo for a second or two a message will come up with info about the change. Today's says, "Happy Birthday Louis Braille!" for example.

Indeed they do – there's an archive here for you to cast your eyes over. :)
That's a pretty insensitive comment, given the nature of today's logo. :mad:

:p :D

Those of you who don't read Braille might be interested to know that the initial five dots (the blue ones) are two Braille characters, not one. The first single-dot code is the code for "capital letter follows" and the second code (four dots) is the code for letter G.

The others are, of course, the codes for letters O, O, G, L, and E, which are lowercase because they do not follow a "capital" code.

The result: "Google"

The colors aren't part of Braille of course, but they help you recognize it as a Google logo!

That'll do. Consider your time-out over :D

Edit: I'm attaching a screen-grab of the logo so that tomorrow we won't have a ton of "WTF?" responses if Google doesn't archive this one.

Some of my friends at school were trying to feel it, you know, like you would if you were blind. It didn't work:eek: .

My favorite from that archive would have to be the one for Frank Lloyd Wright's birthday.

Yeah, I saw this yesterday, didn't think twice about it. Google are always modifying their logo for seasons and events and holidays. Good on them:)
