When you changed your oil, you didn't get ALL the old oil and dirt 
out. So when the fresh oil mixes with it, and especially after it is 
run around a bit while warm, it picks up enough to LOOK dirty rather 
quickly. 

In reality, it's not really that dirty, it just shows up quickly, and 
later in its life the additional dirt makes changes that are not 
nearly so obvious. The actual rate of production of carbon and wear 
products is pretty constant.
