Did anyone happen to catch this over at Hodinkee? Or visit Google today?

It seems like Google has replaced their logo today with a neat drawing of
the British clockmaker John Harrison. Who was born on April 3, 1693, and
would become one of the world's most well known, and important horologists
of all time. Creating some of the most amazing clocks, and also watches that
would not only tell time, but calculate longitude, and accurately navigate the
seas.

Here is that drawing, along with a few pictures for you...
