Everyone is getting on the ancient bandwagon to commemorate today’s Battle of Marathon anniversary and the Athens Classic marathon. Even Google has gone gaga for events in Greece with a special logo. I dig it!
Though I was able to see it and a bit of history in Greek by clicking on the logo at google.com in English, reader ‘Dimatosj‘ told me that it can only be viewed on google.gr.* He’s right, as readers in other countries confirm.
*Note: The logo can no longer be viewed live, as it was only available October 31, 2010 from 00:00-23:59 local Greek time.
*Readers: Thank you, I’m aware of the copycat issue. Just ignore them.
