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."

How does paying students to work on projects like bzflag or scummvm fit with Google's "own purposes"? What would those purposes be?

Clearly Google employees are bored and in need of better games on their so-called "workstations" What could be better than a nice game of "Monkey Island" or BZflag?
