Google Struggles to Give Away $10 Million

Wired: "On its tenth anniversary in 2008, Google promised $10 million to the best five ideas for using technology to improve the world, through Project 10100 – a neat play on words (10 to the 100th power expresses the number “googol,” which is a one followed by one hundred zeroes).

Google’s intentions were good, of course — $10 million spent the right way could have a real impact on these problems, which range from building better banking tools to a real-time, user-reported news service. However, the company’s follow-through leaves much to be desired. Google announced this cash prize contest in September 2008 and closed public voting on 16 finalists chosen from over 150,000 ideas in October 2009. Over eight months later, the company has yet to announce the winners."
