Google Open Source
Code.Google.com launched and is the place for external developers interested in Google-related development.
There are 5 open source projects running right now: CoreDumper, Google mMAIM, Sparse Hashtable, Google/Functional, and Perftools.
Google continues to lead the way and charge off into uncharted territories. Caution to others: don't wait to long, you too must follow these type of indicatives to keep up. And I am not just talking about the big companies.
