Google looking for ideas


by David Allen

Google have been around for ten years now, and in order to celebrate they have launched a programme called Project 10100, which is supposed to mean Project 10 to the 100th, which for anyone who does not know is the real meaning of “Googol”.

The project is calling for ideas. If there is someone out there who thinks that they have an idea for the next big thing, and if Google agree, they are willing to back it to the tune of £5.5 million!

Actually, they won’t because the prize money is going to be split between the top five entries.

The ideas can be anything that is going to make the world a better place, as long as it falls into one of the following categories: sustainable energy use, environment, health, education, shelter, encouraging communities, opportunity and everything else

In order to be in with a chance, entries need to be submitted through project10ofthe100.com by the 20th October, where in January the top hundred will be selected by Google.

Then the public will vote on the twenty best, and in February the final five will be chosen.
