I really enjoy spotting special Google logos.
It’s very seldom that I actually get excited at the PROSPECT of Google paying tribute to someone or something by adapting their logo for a day…
So let’s just say I was rather disappointed to find that there was no Google logo for Madiba on Mandela Day.
Maybe they’ve got a policy of only commemorating departed heroes? Or maybe Mandela Day isn’t such a big thing overseas yet? Or maybe the guys at the Googleplex need some prodding and poking?
And kudos to the printing company around the corner from our office in Cape Town. I spotted their equivalent of a “Mandela Google Logo” when I popped out for lunch on Monday.
That cheered me up.
Happy birthday Madiba. Google logo or no Google logo, we love you.
