Google has put a special Google Doodle today. It celebrates Walter Gropius's birthday. Gropius was a German architect and founder of Bauhaus

A good logo but a bit of logo over dose, considering they just ran the Laser logo recently.

This thread is now back up – I had to temporarily replace it with a static page because the server went down, as this page was linked from the Google search result linked from the logo.

(For reference, this was the temporary place holder page – a static HTML not requiring a database connection... blogoscoped.com/temp/gropius.h ...

And this was the post in the forum discussing it...

<<[Meta] Blogoscoped Googledotted

It appears that this server went blank today... likely because when you click on the Google.com logo for architect Mr. W. G., two blog posts at the bottom point to the forum discussion... and they both will trigger some MySQL requests to display the comments. I'm not completely sure yet though that this is the reason. I put in a quick static HTML fallback in the meantime after the server was restarted. Please don't mention the name of that architect W.G. in this thread, or else I'm fearing another "googledotting" may be near :)

[Thanks Tony and 124!]>>)

Personally I don't like this logo

I think it looks cool as an IMAGE, but I don't think it looks very much like buildings.
