@nitin_muthyala Good question. I've personally met the lead designers from Google and yes, if a team feels like picking up an idea during or after a huge project to free their mind; they indulge themselves in building product they want. Fun-work to be able to get paid to build what you like while making a small change. Am I right or am i right? ;)

@nitin_muthyala Like a lot of companies now days Google developers are allowed a certain number of hours per month to spend on pet projects. This allows developers to innovate in ways that aren't possible when they have to do feasibility studies to prove a project has a need, solves a real problem and has a ROI.

@aichholzer IMHO finding ways to make data easier to understand and funnier to look at is quite important :)
Stefan Aichholzer@aichholzer · Software adventurer & epilogue writer.
@adrien_viault isn't that a matter of perspective?

@aichholzer Email marketing or indeed, any kind of digital marketing would be a great use case!

I can see this being very popular in news stories in the future. Cannot get the things to render when I've tested it, but I can definitely see its promise.
