Google’s new logo: Julia Fractals (and traffic bomb fallout)

I love waking up to a new Google logo. It’s fun, and there is not enough fun out there these days. Today they linked to Gaston Julia, born this day in 1893 in Sidi Bel Abb? Algeria.

Updated: Oh yeah, some guy’s server was killed because Google decided to link the logo to an image search for fractals. Said guy had two of the best looking images and got hammered. He’s not upset, he’s impressed. Read about it here.

Updated #2: Someone paid $2 to explain today’s logo over at Google Answers.

Update #3: Another person got hammered by Google because of thelink to an image search. Google should tell people before they do this kind of thing!
