PublicGyan in TIME magazine cover story

Now, no one predicted that

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Kaps is the bearer of some good news. PublicGyan - The Public Knowledge Exchange is mentioned in Bill Saporito’s cover story in the Oct 24, 2005 issue of TIME magazine (International edition).

The power of markets, it turns out, has something to say about practically everything. We see it at work on Wall Street, which absorbs the collected wisdom of millions of investors and expresses it as stock prices. Prediction markets now let people bet on everything from sports scores to election results to the expected capture of al-Qaeda bigwig Abu Mousab al-Zarqawi. Some of the best of those online markets: the Hollywood Stock Exchange, the Iowa Electronic Markets, Yahoo’s Tech Buzz Game and PublicGyan. [TIME]

In order to tap on the wisdom of ever more people, PublicGyan members can now invite as many as 10 of their friends.
