Reading the book that inspired the movie, “The Social Network”, I was interested in Eduardo Saverin, the cofounder of Facebook.
“Saverin was formerly known for making over $300,000 in one summer trading oil and weather futures,” (from kosmix)
I’m pretty impressed he had the talent to make $300,000 in ONE summer, trading oil and weather futures. My ambition is to make Mohawk extended into personal (at least for now) prediction engine, and make money by making educated guesses.
The interesting thing I’ve been following up is Google’s Prediction API, and I have ideas of implementing it this summer. I’m going to be working on these things quite a bit from now, let’s see how these things work out.
