Do become a member of our LinkedIn group on Prediction Markets, today.

we are now 173.

More information here.

Tonite, I will send an out e-mail to 2 or 3 persons to ask them, if they are kind enough, to review the mission statement of the Open Institute Of Prediction Markets and give me feedback. Many prediction market people and prediction market companies already told me that the concept is very &#8220-interesting&#8221-. It is a good start.

P.S. It won&#8217-t be called the &#8220-Open Institute Of Prediction Markets&#8221-, actually. (You think I am stupid enough to tell all publicly?)

By default, the groups are not visible on your profile. YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THAT OPTION. Do it now. Hurry up. (What? It&#8217-s not done, already? What are you waiting for?)

YOU SHOULD READ: My list of LinkedIn connections is 2.6 times longer than John Delaney&#8217-s one. I have 101- he has only 38. Pfff&#8230- He is so behind. He&#8217-ll never catch up.

Do join the &#8220-Prediction Markets&#8221- group at LinkedIn.

A good resume, in the field of prediction markets, should mention and link to Midas Oracle, of course. You, too, could be part of the gang. Join us today.

Last year, nobody would give the first fig about a &#8220-Michael Giberson&#8221-. He was insignificant. Now, with the orbital price of oil, Mike becomes hot, all of the sudden. I hope he&#8217-ll mind some energy prediction markets, one day, when he has time.
