Google Project 10^100 Calls for Ideas

Google has launched the Project 10100 (“Project 10 to the 100th”) to mark their 10th birthday; a call for ideas to change the world by helping as many people as possible.

You simply fill out the submission form with your idea (maybe add a 30-second video too), then voting starts on January 27th, they post a selection of one hundred ideas, open for a public vote to choose twenty semi-finalists. Then an advisory board will select up to five final ideas. And Google will bring these ideas to life by committing $10 million to implement these projects.

Submit your ideas to help the world by October 20, 2008. CNN will be covering this project, including profiles of ideas and the people who submit them from around the world.

Just in case you are wondering why the name 10100? It is another way of expressing the number “googol,” a one followed by one hundred zeroes, from which Google gets its name.
