Business People, Open Source People, Helping People, This is For You

I realise it’s a bloody long time since I’ve last posted, but I’ve been busy with projects of my own and exams (and a recently purchased Xbox 360) but after watching this video I really think it is of great benefit to any employer, employee or indeed open source advocate out there. It is on the results of a MIT experiment into the economic thinking “Greater reward encourages better work”. I think you’ll find the results interesting. It’s worth mentioning that Google gives employees 20% of their time at work to use on their own projects, and apparently 80% of Goole’s new technologies have come from this 20%.
