Google is going to give 10 million dollars to support the best 5 ideas.

After ten years of being one of the most used search engines on the internet, google decides to commemorate its 10th anniversary through philanthropy.  To do this, it created a project called 10^100; 10^100 is the number googol.

Google presented the world with a simple yet complex proposal.  Show us an idea that can change the world and help as many people as possible, and we will provide the money.  Five ideas will be selected and 10 million dollars will be committed to fund them.

How does one apply for this competition?  Ah yes, as hard as we try, web video is everywhere we look.  The criteria for submitting an idea includes a video explaining the idea, uploading it to YouTube, and among others it has to be an original work.
