Comments: BlogShares - fantasy trading in blogs and ideas

I actually just joined Blogshare a few hours ago, and was checking out the "newest member" indices and saw you were off to a good running start net worthwise, and clicked my way in here out of curiosity. So it does generate page views.

I am quite interested to see how the basic mechanics of the market will sort through a morass of blogs, and whether or not the blogs or their authors will benefit from 'winning'.

But I was impressed with the complexity of the market model; it really isn't something you can learn too quickly; there's some meat on the bones.

I also wasn't happy with the categorization tree; didn't quite fit in anywhere; it was an unusually classified tree. From what I understood, there'll be no disincentive to classify broadly; an existing incentive will be removed.

At any rate, I spent hours there playing with it, something I almost never do. It's a fascinating experiment, and I'm curious to see where it goes.

First of, prices are independant. You can't relate them with NEEDS and DESIRES in any case, can you? And what exactly do you mean when you say humans are computers?

Sell you are ideas dear. Those are worth selling.
