Announcing PublicGyan

A couple of posts back, I'd mentioned prediction markets and James Surowiecki's "The Wisdom of Crowds". Well, inspired by the book, and by the success of prediction markets such as the University of Iowa’s Electronic Markets, Nitin Pai, one of the Indian bloggers I respect most, has started a site called PublicGyan. I've been privileged to be one of the early testers, and I like what I've seen so far. Read more about it in Nitin's own words here. And watch that space.

Update (September 28): I should have mentioned that the man behind the technology that runs PublicGyan is a friend of Nitin's called Srijith, and he deserves much of the credit for getting the site up and running so well.
