What does it mean? It looks something like an ode to the Mandelbrot set or other fractal thingies.

I was going to do an image search for a pic of JFK and his dachshund that I saw a while back, but the logo has intrigued me!

I'm not sure either, I didn't read further, but if you click on the logo it brings you to a search result of pictures that reads: Searched images for gaston julia

Some cool looking fractals there, make good desktop wallpapers. :cool:

Thanks! I forgot about clicking on the logo.

Gaston Julia was a mathematician and pioneer of fractals. I looked up his bio and he lost his nose while serving in WWI and spent the rest of his life wearing a leather brace over where his nose was.

Richard, no jokes, I don't know where he lost it :)

If anyone can find a pic on the web of JFK and his dachshund, I'd be very appreciative. It's driving me nuts :)

I found this tiny pic on the Smithsonian website, but I can't even tell what kind of dogs they are:

Oh, wow, I think that's the one! I found him with Macaroni the pony, but not with a sausage! Thank you :)

Thanks for the info about the Google logo. I could see it was fractals but had no idea about G.J.

Didn't know JFK loved dachsies:D
