Paul Kedrosky and Tim O’Reilly are the hosts of a new conference being held in
November February: Money Tech. Its a look at the intersection of Technology and Money, Asset Management and Networks, Computing Horsepower and Trading.
Money Tech conference = Technology and Money, Asset Management and Networks, Computing Horsepower and Trading + Prediction Markets
Last night was the pre-conference dinner. I met quite a few fascinating people who I know only via their sites and/or email (in order of my surprise upon meeting them or just seeing them there!):
Robin Hanson, George Mason University (expert on information/prediction markets)
Pip Coburn, now of Coburn Ventures (formerly of UBS)
Kris Tuttle, Research 2.0
Nouriel Roubini, RGE Monitor (whom I have met many times before; I have been the guest blogger for RGE for over a year now)
Roger Ehrenberg, Monitor 110
Tony Berkman, Majestic Research
Michelle Leder, Footnoted.org
All told, a fascinating cross section of folk
(I was totally unsurprised to see Michelle there, as she and I and Paul walked over there together . . . )
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
