Google’s Project 10ˆ100

As part of their 10 year anniversary, Google is offering $10million for the next great idea (here), the FAQ is (here)…

How it works

Project 10100 (pronounced “Project 10 to the 100th”) is a call for ideas to change the world by helping as many people as possible. Here’s how to join in.

1. Send us your idea by October 20th.
Simply fill out the submission form giving us the gist of your idea. You can supplement your proposal with a 30-second video.

2. Voting on ideas begins on January 27th.
We’ll post a selection of one hundred ideas and ask you, the public, to choose twenty semi-finalists. Then an advisory board will select up to five final ideas. Send me a reminder to vote.

3. We’ll help bring these ideas to life.
We’re committing $10 million to implement these projects, and our goal is to help as many people as possible. So remember, money may provide a jumpstart, but the idea is the thing.

Good luck, and may those who help the most win.

I have already submitted the idea of an organization that includes representative countries around the world that can come together in a single place and discuss issues that impact everyone, such as peace & security, economic & social development, human rights, humanitarian affairs, and of course international law. Additionally I suggested a method of government where the supreme power is held by the people under a free electoral system where every person is provided fair and equal representation and the ultimate responsibility of the elected officials is to the people themselves. Finally I submitted an idea for edible garbage – I am so going to win!

  1. Nice ideas!

    But boo to Google. They lost me on the part where they open it up to public voting. Sorry, but it suddenly becomes either a) a popularity contest, b) a contest where impossible solutions get voted up (a secure browser!), c) a contest where the funniest ideas get voted up (Hahaha, a midget porn archiving application that knows my tastes!).

    Boo to Google on making it public.

    In the meantime, Google reaps the benefits of lots of good ideas. Boo to that, too. I would have been pro-Google 5 years ago, but today I trust them as much as I trusted Yahoo when Google stole my heart. Such are the evils of going public. 🙂

    On a side note, I hope this gets you indexed under midget porn now!
