"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.

Negroponte is an idiot. Always has been, always will be. His job is talk up the crappy research that the media lab and he does that well I admit, but it doesn’t make the research any less crappy and useless. I mean, they cream off all these so-called bright people and what have they produced that is anyway useful?
