In the News: Google Receives 150,000 ‘Great Ideas’

Search engine Google has received over 150,000 online submissions for its “Project 10 to the 100th" initiative seeking ideas with potentially broad and beneficial effects on society. For the past month Google has been soliciting projects that can build communities, improve health, broaden education access and sustain the global ecosystem. Guided by an advisory board, Google will whittle the entries down to 100 semifinalists by Jan. 27, 2009. Up to five winners will be announced in February, all of whom will share $10 million provided by Google to help turn the ideas into reality. Google launched the project in celebration of its 10th anniversary.
