Volkswagen, Greenpeace, and The Force

Since I just came from my nephew’s Star Wars themed birth­day par­ty at the park ear­li­er today, I fig­ure there’s no bet­ter time to post this.

If you recall ear­ly this year, there was this com­mer­cial that Volk­swa­gen thought of by using The Force. It went some­thing like this video.

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.
