A delightful use of Google 20 percent time: Stevey’s Story Time

If you’ve got 20 percent of your day to spare, check out the latest Stevey’s Blog Rants.

The amazing blog is written by Steve Yegge, a developer at Google’s Kirkland office who used to work at Amazon.com.

I’m being flip about his 20 percent time. The blog’s not an official Google work product, but it must take 20 percent of his bandwidth to produce gems like last night’s “Story Time” opus. No wonder he posts only about once or twice per lunar cycle.

Story Time has everything — Pike Place druggies, submariners in Idaho, adventures in Chinatown and the hilarious El Gaucho pants incident.
