Google Employee On 20 Percent Time

Many of you have heard about the "20 percent time" Google employees are allowed to spend on anything they want.
In Google 20%, Google software developer Joe Beda blogs his personal views on how it works.

It’s an interesting short read on how people may move between project teams in a "fluid" manner, how two teams might be allowed to work on similar projects in hopes things
will ultimately be resolved, and how having 20 percent time isn’t just a time to goof off. Do what you want, but do something interesting, Beda seems to say:

Heck, I don’t have a good 20% project yet and I need one. If I don’t come up with something I’m sure it could negatively impact my review.
