Tech Buzz Fantasy Game

Buzz Game: Home: "The Tech Buzz Game is a fantasy prediction market for high-tech products, concepts, and trends

As a player, your goal 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 the products or technologies you believe will succeed, and selling stock in the technologies you think will flop. In other words, you 'put your play money where your mouth is.'

Example

* You're bullish on podcasting; you buy shares of PODCAST stock
* Britney announces her next single will be delivered exclusively via podcast
* Curious tweens everywhere flood Yahoo! with searches about podcasting
* Your shares skyrocket; you make a bundle"

Goes to sow you we can all have a fantasy game.
