What happened to the 10 to the 100th contest Google had in 2008? I saw no results of their contest. They were supposed to announce the results for the contest that ended in October of 2008, in February of 2009. Google kept postponing the reults based on volume of entrants, but I never saw any results.

Voting on the final 16 big ideas started on September 24 and ended on October 8, 2009. The official website says, "Voting is complete. We'll announce the winning big ideas in the near future."

Some more information:

<< Q: Why did this take so long (original deadline was mid-January)?

A: When we put out our initial call for ideas, we didn't expect so many, over 150,000! Reviewing each idea – and we really did review each and every idea – took a long time, and also forced us to revisit how this project would work. Ultimately, we recognized that many of the ideas we'd received were similar and could be strengthened by being combined with other ideas. The result is the top 16 finalist ideas. We know this took a long time and is organized a little differently from what we originally envisioned, but we hope that the solutions we ultimately arrived at will allow the greatest number of our interested users to have a real impact. >>
