Polish Internet In Mourning For Countrymen

Barry is normally the one who covers when search engines change their livery for special occasions, but he doesn’t live in Poland so I have taken it upon myself to record Poland mourning their lost President & fellow countrymen on the Internet.

Poland is in a week of mourning until midnight 18th April 2010.

Sadly social networking sites that pretend to have a Polish presence such as Facebook and Linkedin didn’t follow suit.

All thumbnails link to larger versions on these screenshots of Polish Internet sites in mourning with subdued grey tones to pay respect to their lost leader and countrymen.

I have switched off comments but trackbacks and pingbacks are open
