Excerpted from an article on nwsource.com, by Bob Keefe:
Got an idea how to make the world a better place? Tell Google about it, and you could win a couple of million bucks to help put it into action.
As part of its 10th birthday celebration, Google launched a $10 million project Wednesday to solicit world-changing ideas from anybody, anywhere.
Google will split the prize money among the top five entries and fund the projects to get them started. Winners won’t get to pocket the cash, but it will be used to get their project off the ground.
They’ll also enjoy, as Google puts it, “good karma and the satisfaction of knowing that your idea might truly help a lot of people.”
No idea is off the table, and Google expects them to run the gamut, from the highest to the lowest of technologies.
