The Buzz Game: Free online fantasy prediction market for technology
March 2, 2006 by Gaman
Here’s a game for those technically minded with entrepreneurial spirit.
Tech Buzz Game is a free online fantasy prediction market for technology. Your goal as a player is to predict how popular various technologies will be in the future. Popularity or buzz is measured by Yahoo! Search frequency over time. Predictions are made by buying virtual stock in technologies you think are about to boom, and selling when substance doesn’t match the hype.
You’ll be given $10,000 in fantasy dollars to play with after you register.
As a web marketer myself, I think this game can be a good way to learn, be aware and keep one abreast with the latest trends in technology. By knowing the trends, one can then create websites about that technology before everyone else does. Only thing is, I am not sure if I can find the time to ‘master’ the game.
But if your do have some time to spend on learing this, then you can head to The tech Buzz Game website.
