10^100 Innovators

Though I am admittedly a little late on this one, I feel that this project deserves as much attention as it can get. And if my blog can alert one extra person to it, I will be satisfied. I hope that person is you.

The project I am talking about is Google’s “10 to the 100th”. Announced yesterday, Google is calling on the world to come up with the best ideas for helping people. They want user submissions of ideas, projects, organizations, inventions, etc. that they will fund to the tune of $10,000,000.

Submissions are already being taken, and will continue to be accepted through October 20th. Once they are all collected, they will be voted on by users, than reviewed by judges to determine 5 finalists. The goal here, according to the website, is come up with ideas big or small that will help a large amount of people. The ideas are broken down into categories, such as energy, environment, and health.

“There are so many great ideas out there that never get funded”, the website claims, “This offers people a way to voice their ideas to the public and have a chance to do something significant with them.”

I love this project. From Google’s end, they get interaction with internet users in a fun and interesting way. They use a contest to get ideas, and offer some great rewards to the most innovative people on the web. From a user’s perspective, this gives people a voice. The winners will be those people that have had this one great idea for a long time and nowhere to turn with it.

As you may have guessed, I have already turned in one suggestion. I would love to hear what you think about the project, and hear any submissions that you have entered as well. The best ideas may come from collaboration anyway, as most great innovations do.
