Google Google have created a new HTTP-based protocol "SPDY" (pronounced "Speedy") to solve the problem of the client-server latency with HTTP. "We want to continue building on the web's tradition of experimentation and optimization, to further support the evolution of websites and browsers. So over the last few months, a few of us here at Google have been experimenting with new ways for web browsers and servers to speak to each other, resulting in a prototype web server and Google Chrome client with SPDY support."

It's quite interesting then to see that one of the funded projects is Mono.

Does Google gain mindshare? Sure, from those that get into the program, but that's about it. Funding a project and gaining mindshare always go together.

People get paid to work on projects not related with Google, so Google doesn't get to take advantage of any of that (not any more than any other company).

As far as I know no one is stopping Microsoft or Yahoo from applying as a mentoring organization and getting Google sponsored coders for free.
