$10 Million!

To celebrate Google’s 10th birthday a couple weeks ago they launched Project 10100 (pronounced “Project 10 to the 100th”). Anyone with a world-changing idea is invited to submit it! This is based on the fact that so many of us have access to tools that could help people, and the fact that there is a staggering number of people that need that help. Google has committed $10 million to funding up to five of the best ideas! Deadline is October 20th 2008.

Since then a Tumblr has popped up called Guns Replaced with Selfie Sticks sharing similar images from popular movies, and it appears they take submissions. More images below.

Animation: Yeasayer “Silly Me”

yeasayer-newmedia

Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
