Yes. I do know what they mean! They are written in Braille (Blind- 
Writing). Braille dots write spoken languages for the blind. In this  
case, the dots are spelling the word Google...(I assume  
that)....notice how the Google logo is usually in the Roman alphabet  
in many colors...well now they put the Braille in many colors too!  
and when you click on those dots on the web, it takes you to a big  
listing of documents about the invention of Braille writing (blind- 
writing), by Louis Braille...I remember when I lived in Denmark they  
called Braille, Blind-Writing...
