My personal guess is they'll keep us all guessing. Employees taking 1 day a week each to work on personal interest projects could lead the company in very curious directions. I know if I were working there I would be interested in spam filtering and/or developing agents to navigate the semantic web, perhaps even translation assistants. With access to Google's resources and some of the brains there, as well as the fact they like Python, a "hacker" could be very happy in the Googleplex!
