I Will Teach You to be Rich Contest Results

On Tuesday I announced a contest to help Ramit promote his upcoming six week financial bootcamp. The premise was this: we played five rounds of Liar's Poker, and whoever could guess the final score and guess the final digits on our last dollar bills would win.

Before I show you the video with the results, I have a few comments. First, I wish that everyone won who predicted I would win 5-0. If I had giant buckets of money, I would buy each of those people a baby elephant for a pet. I would also buy wild hungry crocodiles for each person who said that Ramit was going to win 5-0.

So who won? The ex professional gambler or the bestselling financial advice author? Well, I'm not going to tell you -- you'll have to watch the video and find out!

Nicholas Negroponte at GigaOM Mobilize Conference

On DROdio

I recently attended GigaOM's Mobilize 2010 conference in San Francisco, where many speakers pontificated on the current and future impact of mobile.  The event was good and fast-paced, although I wished some of the panels could've gotten more in-depth.  Kudos to my friend Teck Chia who spoke on a panel at the event.

One interesting keynote was from Nicholas Negroponte, the creator of the One Laptop Per Child initiative.  He spoke about the history of the program, and what's worked, and what hasn't worked, as well as his move into tablets instead of laptops.  He gave some compelling reasons why tablets would help 3rd world countries leapfrog the US educational system, and how he's working to create tablets that allow users to create content, not just consume content (the key, he says, is content creation - without it, everyone is just a bunch of couch potatoes).

Here's the video of his talk:
