Comment: Why Hasn't Anyone Thought Of This Before (Score 2) 221

This is revolutionary. An amazingly original idea, perhaps some life form that is silicon based instead of carbon based, with no DNA, hiding at the bottom of a mine shaft or something. A Devil in the dark if you will.

I just wonder why no one has ever though of this before now.

Google To Fund Ideas That Will Change the World 165

Peace Corps Online writes "This week, as part of their tenth birthday celebration, Google announced the launch of project ten to the 100th, a project designed to inspire and fund the development of ideas that will help to change the world. They have called on members of the public to share their ideas for solutions that will help as many people as possible in the global community, offering a $10 million prize pool to back the development of those chosen as winners. 'We know there are countless brilliant ideas that need funding and support to come to fruition,' says Bethany Poole, Project Marketing Manager for Google. 'These ideas can be big or small, technology-driven or brilliantly simple — but they need to have impact.' The project's website asks entrants to classify their ideas into one of eight categories listed as Community, Opportunity, Energy, Environment, Health, Education, Shelter and Everything Else. Members of the public have until October 20th to submit their ideas by completing a simple form and answering a few short questions about their idea."
