Any idea what this recently registered domain might signal? A new Google project or service?
The domain is: Project10tothe100.com.

Project10tothe100.com (currently 404) was first registered to Google (via a domain registration firm) a few weeks ago (August 18, 2008) and was moved to Google name servers last Friday.

oops. The domain was registered on August 28, 2008 NOT August 18th.

A quick guess:
bringing 10 (Megabytes?) to several hundred million people.
That would be that recently launched satellite project

Nice catch CIA. So is Project (10^100) Google an actual project or just a new domain?

Could be Google's celebration of being ten years old.

Here's a possible clue, from page 17 of the Google Chrome comic book:

Here's an interesting alternative clue, although it's a real "long-shot".

In Cory Doctorow's novel "Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom" he refers several times to "Ten to the hundred years" as the amount of time until the heat death (end) of the universe. And guess what – the central theme of the novel is about backups of people's entire life, their entire existence:

   “See you in ten to the hundred,” Dan said, and headed to the
   airlock. I started after him, but Jeanine caught my hand.

   “He hates long good-byes,” she said.

   “I know,” I said, and watched him go.

   The universe gets older. So do I. So does my backup, sitting
   in redundant distributed storage dirtside...

I was talking about that, and although the comic trail seems sensible, I'd like to push that one too

Here are some of the screenshots from Google's timeline. The fourth one is interesting:

>> Wikipedia says “physicist and broadcast personality Carl Sagan estimated that writing a googolplex in numerals ... would be physically impossible, since doing so would require more space than the known universe occupies.”

Well, if you have a number that's 1 followed by more zeros than the atoms in the known universe, it's obvious that its writing in numerals would require more space than the known universe occupies. Do you really need Carl Sagan for that? :-D

Just saw your idea on TV. GREAT IDEA.
people need to be aware of a design of operation that was incorperated under the laws of New York in 1934 that was developed by a group of scientists and engineers who called themselves The Technical Alliance.It took them 14 years to design a way of operation without the use of money.The govrnment has even developed a misleading web site to try to throw people off by using a simular name.
Their advice is to establis
h the facts and use science like they did and you will see the capitalistic system has collapsed as they predicted. Their project studied the properties of money and found this would happen due to the greed it allowed.
They found by going to energy accounting ie. ergs or kilajoles as everything contains energy. This would solve all the worlds main problems, greed, crime etc. Everything could then move forward as wast would be eliminated and all needs could be provided as a a right of citizenship with what they refered to a energy cirtificate. This would give all things needed and would expire at the end of each year. The full study is available on their web site. Technocracy.ca

And what's the top result for [Project 10 to the 100]? ;-)

google.com/search?q=Project+10 ...

Note: Google's project is actually called "Project 10 to the 100th" – looks like that domain got snapped up today:

you no how thousands of people die in car accdents each year form drunk driving ,deers coming out in front of cars, people talking on there cell phones or people are not watching whats going on around them well my ieda is to create some type of sensor rails to go on the side of roads to let people now that something is going wrong around them and place little screens in cars that can send a message to the driver and make sure that there aware of what going on around them that way less people get killed and more lives get saved.

IIRC they changed this in the site's title tags. I noticed the "...100th" in the project FAQ but the title element of project10tothe100.com just had "Project 10 to the 100". Can't find any homepage cache other than the nearly blank "Greetings" page right now though, I'd be more sure seeing a cache...

How original is this name do you think? I found this... 10over100.org/ called '10 over 100' which tries to achieve a similar aim but with different method (not everyone has $10m!).

Clearly Google's idea is great..but I wonder how original their name is?

I've written more about it on my blog...

Well, the creator of the idea doesn't recive a penny, and besides that, he/she doesn't even receive CREDITS.

And don't start the selfishness trick, it won't work, Google and the companies what may be subcontracted to make the idea real, will fill their pockets with even more money and clearly keep all credits.

Philanthropic disguise to make themselves even richer.

What's wrong with making money off of helping people? The way i see it, yeah, Google is a corporation. A corporation's bottom line is to make money. I don't like corporations. I do like Google. They've (almost) always been able to make it good for them to do good for customers, people, and/or the world.

As for stealing the idea-- what's wrong with using a great idea like this? All information and ideas should be free anyways

I have an idea regarding primary education for kids.
The idea goes like this:
The companies should write the various alphabets on the packets of their products like A,B,C,D and so on so that the primary education can be in the reach of every person.We have to make sure that these products should be well in the reach of poor families(like salt,milk etc) for its optimum result.
This may be useful for the company also as they may get support from their respective governments.
This will help especially in poor countries where parents are not able to send their children to school.

in my opinion population control is the best way to save & safe society, opportunity, energy, environment, health, education etc. because as on date natural resources are lesser day by day and human residential complexes are expanding towards animals in jungles and all this happening due to excess of population and less life sources all over world and if we overcome this chronicle problem like population then we will find overself in a changed world like heaven one day.

in my opinion 6 things make world to a new world.
1 introduction
2.short story
3 presentation
4 threat
5 close
6 cost
in intoduction part world is defined by many scientiests or other person.basically it is made up of 6 things earth,water,air,fire,sky & human......
2nd thing is short story how can i make or convert world a to new world.don't copy to d others.all things do naturally.
3rd thing is my natural idea.if we want to make a new world.every human will have changed.if i will changed then the world will be changed.for dis type of changed not will be come in one day.if we r really want to new world than we will be found new planete or space.where d self made persons r available.mars is our 1st option.where i can found a new world.any other idea is not suitable to see which help me to convert a world to new world.dat solve.
4th thing is threat dat means fear of loss.when we will not loss to fear.we can make new world.
5th thing is close.how can i describe in dis human world.all gud things r done by a great opportunity.example of newtons law or take example of principle of energy.6 thing is cost.it is valuable.

This is a great idea and I am sure it will result in something big and valuable.

I would appreciate if i get a feed back on my question. I have an idea and i filled out 90 per cent of the form and I had to leave and come back. I almost lost what I had filled out. Is there anyway we can save our work and finish up or do a touch up before we submit it.

Thanks

Hi folks;

I submitted a proposal for Project Ingenesist. This is a new financial system where money is pegged to innovation – not gold, silver, or debt (like the current fianancial crisis).

It's a system and method for making knowledge tangible in Social Networks and outside the construct of corporations, banks, government – the ones that got us into trouble in the first place.

Everyone benefits because we'll be released from the shackles of debt economics. It's cool and I am hoping that people here would review it at

www.ingenesist.com (see 10^100 page)

Thanks
