Web 2.0 and Photosynth

On November 9th, I announced the public availability of Photosynth at the Web 2.0 Summit. A lot of people have said that Photosynth was the high point of Web 2.0, which is obviously great kudos to the Live Labs team, MSR, and U. Wa.

A couple of people have asked for a copy of the presentation that I gave, so it is linked here.

Scoble took a really nice video of me demoing Photosynth.

Also, I jumped into a discussion thread at MeFi about Photosynth to answer some questions that people had about the tech preview.

The Tech Buzz Game

Technology soothsayers can put their predictions to the test as part of a research project merging search-query data with a virtual, online marketplace.eWeek

The Tech Buzz Game is a fantasy prediction market for high-tech products, concepts, and trends. It is a joint research project between Yahoo! Research Labs and O'Reilly Research.

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."

This was just about the last project that I worked on before leaving Yahoo.
