    Maybe the answer that helps somebody is in your head, in something you've observed, some notion that you've been fiddling with, some small connection you've noticed, some old thing you have seen with new eyes.
    If you have an idea that you believe would help somebody, we want to hear about it. We're looking for ideas that help as many people as possible, in any way, and we're committing the funding to launch them.

    Is there compensation for the ideas? If so, I have a killer suite of ideas.

    One of these days, people are going to find out that Google is made of Soylent Green -- Brin and company have been sustaining the life of all their google-bots for years on it.

    nope.
    Q: What do I get if my idea is chosen?
    A: You get good karma and the satisfaction of knowing that your idea might truly help a lot of people.
    But they will forward your info on to a company who show's interest in developing it.

    It looks like there will be compensation: link. They have a pool of ten million dollars. If one idea is chosen, that person gets all ten-million. If two ideas are chosen, then both ideas receive five-million each, so on and so forth.

    I haven't read anything that says the money actually goes to the winner, just that it will be spent.

    Well the nominees are up. Looks like my kinetic highway idea got over looked and yet public transpo airships did!?
    The project suddenly doesn't look so selfless.
