http://r23.cc/interface/ is a very nice example of audio streaming
with server-side Pd. The Google SOC can be about anything, but Pd has
these very good advantages over other dataflow languages :

 * can be used with no GUI (server-side)
 * has many many externals, hence possibilities
 * is free (FLOSS)
 * patching is somewhat easy

The project could be about patches or externals. It could be focussed
on the server-side usages of Pd. One could also use ffmpeg (see
http://blog.go4teams.com/?p=56 ) or any other conversion tool on the
server-side as well.
