Google Launches "Project 10 to the 100th"

As part of its 10-year anniversary celebration, Google has launched Project 10 to the 100th. The Project is a call for ideas to change the world by helping as many people as possible

Categories include:

  • Community: How can we help connect people, build communities and protect unique cultures?

  • Opportunity: How can we help people better provide for themselves and their families?

  • Energy: How can we help move the world toward safe, clean, inexpensive energy?

  • Environment: How can we help promote a cleaner and more sustainable global ecosystem?

  • Health: How can we help individuals lead longer, healthier lives?

  • Education: How can we help more people get more access to better education?

  • Shelter: How can we help ensure that everyone has a safe place to live?

  • Everything else: Sometimes the best ideas don't fit into any category at all.

Entries can be submitted through October 20, 2008. The top 100 ideas will be selected and posted for public voting to narrow the field to 20 semi-finalists. An advisory board will then select up to 5 finalists and identify the organization(s) best able to implement the winning ideas. Google has committed $10 million for implementation of the winning ideas.

I wish Google all the best with this great competition. Lets hope Google finds some world changing ideas. With all that is happening in the news today we need something.
When you start to think about it, how do you truly help people? Our world is driven by self interest and greed. Full marks to Google for trying to stimulate the opposite - Altruism .Check out this blog where a group of people are trying to bestow to the world with a joint suggestion.
