Google has always had the policy of not doing evil. This is a policy that critics of the company love to cite when they don’t approve of something Google’s up to. It goes without saying though, that Google’s 10th anniversary project, titled "Project 10100" or "10 to the 100th" is definitely the opposite of evil.

The project is a contest in which the winner gets the prize of helping people all over the world. "We’re looking for ideas that help as many people as possible, in any way, and we’re committing the funding to launch them," says Google. They’re committing $10 million to them, to be more precise.

Here’s how it works: You submit your idea of how to help as many people in the world as possible. Google will then select 100 of the best ideas, those will be voted on publicly to determine 20 semi-finalists, which will then be whittled down to 5 finalists. The $10 million will apparently be spread across these 5 projects. This sounds like a good thing for humanity to me. Categories under which your ideas can be submitted include:

How evil is Google now? They’re a huge corporation that is going to invest a nice chunk of money into making the world a better place, not only that, they’re leaving how to do that up to us. Yes, it is true that not everything the search and technology giant does is quite so angelic, but you can’t knock them for this one.

    An age old Quesion….How can we make the world a better place. 

    The problem isn’t here…its who.  The problem is within us..all of us.

    I believe the only way to really fix this entire planet is to genetically engineer greed out of us, and this will allow love to take over and create a place for all of us.  

    Well…we just can’t do that can we…so.

    The alternate answer is then to educate people.   And an education in an area were we aren’t schooled in…and that is Tolerance. 

    I don’t have to accept what my neighbor does, but as long as he isn’t hurting me physically or mentally then i should tolerate his/her actions.  If we could all learn a little tolerance there would be an end to this life…and the chance for a new.

    Education in an area of love…so that CEO’s don’t take home millions while the ones that make him that money can barrely fill the gas tank…or buy groceries.

    Education in love, so that just because i’m Christian doesn’t make me better than my Muslim brothers….

    Education in love, so that homeless and starving in my/your area are taken care of rather than over seas…not that i’m against that…but what about your direct neighbors..they are always over looked.

    We cannot…as Americans fix hunger in other countries till the hunger problem is fixed here.

    We cannot…as Americans fix education in other countries till we fix the education problem here at home.

    We cannot….AS PEOPLE, fix anything…till we can fix that problem in our own home.

    Every problem that is listed above, enviornment, shelter, energy…all of them, can not ever be truely fixed, if the root of the problem is not taken care of.   

    And that root, the root of all evil…is Greed.

    Everyone wants more…thats human.  But sharing the wealth, the education, is something that must be taught.   Its not in us, we are animals deep down inside, and we must be taught how to love, care, and share with our neighbors.

    If everyone that walked buy the homeless person in a big city gave him a dollar he would have enough to get a room..and some new clothes, and he might be able to start  over again…and it didn’t hurt anyone on the street.  But, we would rather turn the cold shoulder to him…because that is easier.

    We must teach Love and Tolerance…this will create a better place on its own.

    How nice to hear of a huge company trying to do something good…and letting the people have the decision of exactly what to do. Great idea, hope it works out well.
