Sierpinski triangle?

Oh, neat! At first I thought they had just shooped it in, but you can see the triforce there on Google's own archive.

I think we must send link.

It's the artist's calling card/signature.

In other news, I just got my GoogleVoice invitation and holy shit I'm impressed. I can't think of a better way to stop telemarketing than a friendly "this call is recorded" before every pickup.

Methinks someone is using the word "conspiracy" incorrectly. There is no cabal, and even if there were, it would not approve of easter eggs.

Yeah, well, the word “great” doesn't really fit, either.

It does seem to be a Triforce, however.

It seems that you're all missing the fact that it's an easter egg from Zelda; There's nothing cospiratorial, nor great about it; It's just a really awesomely geeky thing for Google to do.

There's also a slight chance that someone involved is a /b/ tard. Encyclopedia Dramatica is not safe for work or sanity.

Triforce? What a lame conspiracy.

It's because they're Freemasons...

newfags can't triforce

I can't even parse this. "Newfag" I get. "Can't" is actually English. But... isn't "triforce" a noun? What is this sentence claiming noobs can't do?

Woman: Oh, Stewardess! I speak /b/tard.

When I blew up the Tesla image, it looked more like a capital T in the center of a triangle than three triangles.

I'm guessing it's the artist's sig.

The capital "T" in a triangle is the Triangle Fraternity.

Digg was already all over this.

This is the artist's twitter, home page, an online art gallery, etc.

Obviously a zelda fan.

holy crap -- i noticed this once, and thought it was a degraded AOL logo. Neat.

Duh, it's the Trilaterial Commission.

Make that Trilateral. I need more coffee.
posted by exogenous at 7:24 AM on July 17, 2009

It is time to restore a forgotten conspiracy theory.

Obviously this is a sign for the Trilateral Commission which has secretly ruled the world for decades. Now that Google power extends world wide they are comfortable enough to start putting the Trilateral Commission symbol right on their front page.

I got googlevoiced today, too. Yay. We will all be assimilated googed.
posted by theora55 at 7:51 AM on July 17, 2009

You fools! That's no triforce -- the artist's predilection for Zelda is just a cover. That symbol is obviously the logo for Cyberdyne Systems masquerading in a slightly different form! Judgment Day is coming... soon the G-800s will be stamping on our skulls with their big Chrome boots!

I have a 9 year old with a Zelda obsession. Why does even the Google support this madness?

Conspiracy? Really?

This is beautiful and amazing...as if I really needed another reason to love Google more, they throw in my Achilles' heel, references to Zelda.

Oh no they've gotten to my employers, too
