Last fall Google launched Project 10^100, a call for ideas to change the world by helping as many people as possible, over 150,000 ideas were submitted and narrowed down to the best 16 ideas. With our help (by voting at http://www.project10tothe100.com/vote.html) up to 5 will receive funding to implement the idea. The video below is a beautiful clip capturing the essence of Project 10^100.
What would help? And help most?
At Google, we don't believe we have the answers, but we do believe the answers are out there. Maybe in a lab, or a company, or a university -- but maybe not.
Maybe the answer that helps somebody is in your head, in something you've observed, some notion that you've been fiddling with, some small connection you've noticed, some old thing you have seen with new eyes.
We've narrowed 154,000 submissions down to 16 top ideas. Which ones should we make real? Cast your vote, and help us change the world.
Voting ends October 8, 2009 so get over to the site and cast your votes, I already did ! http://www.project10tothe100.com/vote.html
