Yesterday, Barry did a roundup of January 1st search engine logos and made a brief acknowledgment that the Google logo links to January 1st TCP/IP. That's because while it was a New Year for most of us, it's also the celebration of 25 years of TCP/IP, according to Philipp Lenssen.

Philipp also noted an easter egg in the actual confetti parts themselves (SYN SYN / ACK ACK which refers to a 3-way handshake to establish connectivity on the TCP/IP protocol) as seen in his screenshot below:
