It's Google's 10th birthday, and in recognition they have launched Project 10 to the 100 (which is, notably, a Googol).

The project is an open call for ideas to help change the world and make this planet a better place while having an effect on as many people as possible.

Here's how it works:

1. People submit their ideas - you can submit an idea right now if you want at their idea submission page. A single person may submit as many ideas as he or she would like, as long as they meet the deadline of October 20, 2008. You can even include a video up to 30 seconds in length.

2. The people vote - 100 ideas will be posted on the website, and the public will have a chance to vote on which they like starting on January 27, 2009. From this, twenty semifinalists will be chosen. Five finalists will then be picked by an "advisory board."

3. Google funds the idea - Google will then fund companies to further your idea with a total of $10 million USD.

You can learn more about Project 10 to the 100th as well as submit your idea at the Project 10 to the 100th Website.

I will be following up on Google's noble project later as well as when voting begins and when the semifinalists and finalists are chosen.
