The big guy on campus - Google - In celebration of it's 10 Th birthday/anniversary has come up with a great idea. Their great idea is to help others with great ideas! Imagine that concept! In a nutshell, here's what it's all about: (You can follow the link for more details)
Got an idea that could change the world, or at least help a lot of people? Google wants to hear from you -- and they'll pay as much as $10 million to make your idea a reality.
It seems the folks at Google are being intentionally vague about some of the details of the contest. I guess they don't want to thwart creativity. I can understand that.
But people are encouraged to submit their ideas, in any of 25 languages, on
http://www.project10tothe100.com/index.html through October 20.
Entrants must briefly describe their idea and answer six questions, including,
"If your idea were to become a reality, who would benefit the most and how?"
Google employees, with the help of an advisory board, will narrow the submissions to 100 semifinalists by January 27. Between January 27 and February 2, the public will vote online for their favorite ideas. A panel of as-yet-unnamed judges will then review the top 20 ideas and announce up to five winners in mid-February.
So get on board. Get your thinking "cappies" on let's come up with some courageously daunting and Intrepid Ideas!
