"Visionary" Negroponte Bets On Me Too Betting Dot Com

from the makes-you-wonder dept

It seems that former technology cheerleader Nicholas Negroponte has been pretty quiet lately. The Guardian in the UK has an interview with him where he talks about how excited he is concerning his new investment in “Flipem” a site that lets people make bets with each other. For such a so-called “visionary” guy, this seems like a really small play. Even worse, is that it’s a me-too play. We talked about a similar person-to-person betting system over a year ago, and even the Long Bets Foundation has been online for a while now.
