TechForX is a new website which offers a fun (i.e. not commercial) exchange for forecasting fast emerging trends and hot issues from the content industry. From the email I received about the site from Andreas I gather that the site is partly funded by the European Commission and will be inputting into foresight activities run by the European Commission.
The system works very much in the way they John Kearon has been discussing with his take on Surowiecki’s Wisdom of Crowds. People can register on the site and use ‘play’ money to trade virtual stocks to provide an indicator of how the real world might be changing.
