I think it's a technological connection related to the debate on Proprietary v Open internet technologies.

The significance may not be the past but rather future or present.They hinted at the it with their buckyball doodle. The interaction and movement of the balls is done without flash. They did not say how they coded it but may be hinting at a new method of web animation.

I'm still hunting for the historacle value for the balls. At times I find them fun other times I find them annoying. But for one day, I think it's fun.

sweet very fun. But on my computer the balls get bigger the farther away from the center they are. On my friends computer they stay the same size.
