Google’s video of Guido demoing their Mondrian code review system is available. It is a fascinating system, and I wonder where the people/attitude component fits in. Technically, the system is really interesting, and I expect it’ll be copied to some extent external to the Google world at some point. Enough people will probably be excited about it… but the Mondrian system is built very internally to Google – using a lot of their private/internal architecture to get things done.

Takes a while to watch the whole kit, but it’s worthwhile.
