Google Balls Logo

Today if you visit Google you will see a Google logo made up of crazy balls. The logo moves around based on your mouse cursor, similar to the buckyballs doodle from a few days ago. But this one is really all over the place.

Here is a video I made of the logo:

Here is a static picture of the balls forming the Google logo:

I personally find this logo very nice. I asked Google why? I asked was it birthday related, as some suspect. They said no. Google told me, "Today’s doodle is not related to a birthday but is fast, fun and interactive, just the way we think search should be." Maybe this is a prelude to the big Google Search Event that takes place tomorrow? I don't know. I suspect they will clue us in at that event.

Many searchers are upset. There is thread after thread with complaints in the Google Web Search Help forum. And most people in the US aren't up and on their computers yet.

Forum discussion at Google Web Search Help, Google Blogoscoped Forums & Google Webmaster Help.

Update: Here are my thoughts on why Google is so secretive of this logo and what we can expect Google to announce in conjunction with the explanation of this logo tomorrow.
