Google’s Project 10^100

YouTube Preview Image

Project 10100 is a call for ideas to change the world by help­ing as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble.

Here are the points in order to par­tic­i­pate:

  1. Sub­mit your ideas by Octo­ber 20th. You may do so by using this sub­mis­sion form.
  2. Vot­ing takes place on Jan­u­ary 27, 2009. Google will be pick­ing the top 100 ideas, of which 20 semi-final­ists will be select­ed through pub­lic vot­ing. From there, Google advi­so­ry board will then select up to 5 final ideas.
  3. After the final ideas have been picked, Google will bring them to life. They will com­mit $10-mil­lion to imple­ment the projects.

I like how Google is doing this. Hope­ful­ly, its suc­cess­ful enough that not only a lot of peo­ple con­ceive great ideas but also help the World. If any, I would­n’t be a bit sur­prised if those 5 or so final­ist show up on TED Talks.

More details avail­able at project10tothe100.com. Good luck every­one! Let’s change the World pos­i­tive­ly.

Kon­tain is a free web­site for you to blog and share your pho­tos, videos and audio with friends, fam­i­ly, even beau­ti­ful strangers.

Virb.com — The MySpace Killer?

Well, what else can I say about this new site—Virb.com. Bril­liant!

I was going to do a write­up about the new site that is going to be com­pet­ing with the giant in online com­mu­ni­ty, MySpace.com but I just found this review arti­cle by Kevin Sylvia, Virb — Advanced Social Net­work­ing.

Here’s my pro­file, virb.com/sherwin. Time to switch =p
