This isn't entirely off-topic, but i remember reading about one of the Google founders discussing how they decide what projects are worth their time and money to which the answer was a simple formula along the lines of whatever has the greatest potential to change the world. Anybody have any idea what i'm talking about?

I remember reading something like that too...

They talked a lot about that in their IPO Letter:

They also have "Project 10 to the 100th"
