Oh, man. I am so going to do this.
All I need to do is come up with a prizewinning Big Idea, and I’m set for life, thanks to the MacArthur Foundation’s “100 and change” project.
Well, OK, the $100 million is intended to go towards implementing the Big Idea, the solution to some pressing problem, but I could probably name myself as head of the foundation and pay myself a salary, right? And, well, according to the press release, I’d have to create my own nonprofit organization first, as individuals can’t apply.
What do you think? What’s your Big Idea?
