Google has celebrated their 10th birthday with an innovative approach, namely submit an idea to them and they will provide the funding for it – A $10 million dollar fund is on the line. They are calling it Project 10 to the 100th. It is basically a play on the word googol, a one followed by one hundred zeroes.
Just fill out the submission form and send it to Google. Voting by the public on 100 selected ideas will begin on January 27, 2009, and 20 semi-finalists will then be chosen. Out of the twenty ideas, five final ideas will be chosen.
I myself have spent some thought on an idea and just submitted it to Google. You can submit yours too. Don’t worry even if you think it’s crappy, because it doesn’t hurt to try when you’re doing it for a good cause….
On another note about Google, you might want to check out a personal blog by Sergey Brin, one of the Google founders, which he just began very recently. With a linking in of 430,891 links after just (10?) days, that’s very impressive, or so I notice. It means there must be a lot of blogs mentioning, and therefore linking to Too. That’s the privilege you get when you’re the owner of Google and Blogger itself, though I doubt Sergey will be updating it all that much. 🙂
Anyway, Happy 10th birthday, Google!Share This:
