Prediction Markets talk at SDForum on August 9

I'll be giving a talk on Prediction Markets next Wednesday at the SDForum. I'll be focusing on prediction markets in general, and will only talk about Zocalo a little. I did post the annoucement on CommerceNet's events site, but this is the first time it has been blogged. Seems like a good way to initiate my Prediction Market blogging at Now that my stint at CommerceNet is over, I'll be blogging about Prediction Markets here until and unless I find a different institutional home for it. I think I averaged about 1 post on Prediction Markets a week there; I hope to add that rate to the posting I've been doing at PanCrit all along.

The talk is at 7pm on August 9th, at Cubberly community center, on Middlefield Road in Palo Alto. It's sponsored by the Emerging Tech Sig of the SDForum.

I'll be happy to repeat this talk (or tailor it appropriately) for other audiences. If you know of other venues where it would make sense, please let me know.


Here are the slides: PPT, PDF.

I would love to attend your talk but I've made a prior commitment to be in SF that night.

I am a big fan of the Bay Area Future Salons:

I figure your talk would be interesting to that audience, so it's a possible venue for you. Contact Mark Finnern: mark at

Any chance of you posting podcast or video of the presentation?

Sorry, I didn't record, and I don't think anyone else did, either. I've added my slides to the main entry.
