Google's Project 10 to the 100

As part of their 10th anniversary celebrations, Google has launched a new initiative called Project 10 to the 100 - a unique way of soliciting the great undiscovered ideas out there. They have $10 million to spend on five ideas and have received over 100,000 submissions, some by video.

The categories are Community, Opportunity, Energy, Environment, Health, Education, Shelter and Everything else. Once Google select up to five ideas for funding, they will begin an RFP process to identify the organisation(s) and proposals to implement the selected ideas.

It is not clear how this fits with's programs but what a great way to celebrate your 10th anniversary - better than the usual corporate publication, party or video. Submissions have closed but you can still vote for the best idea.
