I agree...Project 10^100 is a great contest.

I have submitted my idea. My idea deals with creating a more incentive-driven health system. Think about it: wouldn't you like to get paid for being healthy or be able to "trade" your health to other less healthy family members or friends. Sound interesting...then find out more at the URL website below (by clicking my name "Jonathan Barry").

Google received over 100,000 ideas. Too bad only 100 ideas will be published by January 27th, 2009.

To make sure your idea can be seen, you can publish it on to help the world.

A multi-field project is becoming one of the most popular... It is in the areas of Energy (renewable), health (for paraplegics), environment and community.

Check out the vid. for Future Energy the Gravity (Affordable Wheelchair - Self Propelled/ "Gravity Driven"). The vid uses the phrases "Expectation" and "Innovate to Help"...

It is one of the most viewed and top rated project proposal. There must be a reason behind. Just check it...

Wide Open World Security - An idea for "Google Project 10 to the 100th"

WOWS is an open society beyond politics with two main elements.

The first is delegations from different cultures, religions, international organisations, countries and companies*. The delegates work together continuously. The working process can be followed and observed by internet users around the world. Monitoring, observation is continuous during the working hours as in a "Big brother-show". A delay is used in the broadcast of the "show" for security reasons. WOWS uses a system similar to that of the free online dynamic encyclopaedia: Wikipedia, to improve the efficiency of work. The information base will be approved by delegates.

The other element of WOWS is the registered users who can access the database. The users also have a voting system through which they are able to determine (influence) the priority of a certain topic emerging during work.

Some income is required from TV stations who want to use any part of the visual or text based data made by WOWS. *Companies can use the logos and trademarks of WOWS if they have delegates, they are registered, and paid for a membership fee. The main focus areas to be discussed and researched are the followings:

Without political reasons, what are the main problems? With the cooperation of people from around the world, what are the possibilities?

-Ancient Knowledge & Science Today: What's behind the scenes? Are there so many secrets, or only a great one? There is a lot of reliable information on the internet about technologically advanced ancient cultures who had also advanced knowledge about natural healing, sacred geometry, etc. There are also so many publications and videos about UFOs and paranormal symptoms, etc. Is there any secret knowledge coded into different cultures? Opinions required from the delegates!

-Technological Singularity, Human Cultural Evolution: The time for Technological singularity is here.* What we can do to be prepared? Economic aspects, potential dangers, accelerating change, human cultural evolution. Which is the best way to avoid conflicts? Opinions of religious people and scientists required!

* Technological singularity is a theoretical future point of unprecedented technological progress, caused in part by the ability of machines to improve themselves using artificial intelligence.

-Global Threats to life on Planet Earth: Dangerous meteors, comets, other celestial bodies, danger from the outer space. Information about 2012 required (the next end of the world theory).

-Online Data Analysis of the World: Everybody wants to know everything about our Planet! Up-to-date information charts, provided by WOWS. We must share bad news with people, to minimise the effects. Online world map of the following: starvation, epidemics, disease, catastrophes, big accidents, etc. (level of the displays must be defined by registered users of WOWS)...
