Y! Tech Buzz Game

Yahoo! Research Labs brings us the Tech Buzz Game – a fantasy prediction market for high-tech products, concepts and trends.

Buy virtual stock in concepts that you feel have the opportunity to increase in popularity and watch your (virtual) portfolio soar.

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

Oh – did I mention you can win prizes?

Hmmm. I wonder if I can short Internet Explorer….
