What do the balls mean?!

Kai Ryssdal Sep 7, 2010

This final note, in which I try crowdsourcing to help figure out something that’s been bugging me all day. What’s up with Google today? Y’know how on its homepage they sometimes change their logo depending on the day. Red, white and blue for the Fourth of July, the Olympic rings during the Olympics. It’s usually pretty clever actually. Today’s a little bizzare. The logo’s just these little balls that form the word “Google.” They scatter all over the page when you run your mouse over them. No rhyme, or reason or obvious celebration that I can think that I’m missing. So, if you know what’s up, lemme know — Or, through our website where the logo doesn’t change.
