David Pennock makes the TR 35

David Pennock, with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working on the Buzz Game collaboration between O’Reilly and Yahoo! Research Labs, has made Technology Review’s list of top 35 technologists under the age of 35. David’s work on futures markets as aggregators of intelligence resulted in the dynamic pari-mutuel market underlying the Buzz Game. You’ll find all the nitty gritties in his publication, “A Dynamic pari-mutuel market for hedging, wagering, and information aggregation.”

I first ran across David–albeit without really knowing so at the time–in James Surowiecki’s book The Wisdom of Crowds”, having read it about a week or so before meeting him in person. It wasn’t until I introduced him to James at the most recent edition of the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference that two and two became four.

Congratulations, David, on making the TR 35!
