Is Google preparing for a siege (not Siege, mind you) at their Menlo Park headquarters? Perhaps this is the banner they will fly when Z-Day, the zombie holocaust, happens? Or is this their own version of Phase 2?
TJ Riley, Google Data Center Tech worked on this banner for four months. He says he did it just because he liked doing it, but I have my doubts. I think one of the above scenarios is highly more likely. Otherwise, you’d crack some sort of obvious joke, like this was Google’s C-Mail (perpetually in beta), right?
