theodp writes “On Google’s 10th Birthday in 2008, the search giant promised $10 million to the best five ideas for using technology to improve the world, through Project 10^100. CNN reports that while Google’s intentions were good, of course, the company’s follow-through leaves much to be desired. Google announced the 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. ‘While genocide and other pressing problems relentlessly advance,’ remarked contest finalist Daniel Meyerowitz to Wired.com, ‘it would seem that Project 10^100 does not.’”
