Capitalism Good

I saw this BlogShares game over at Christine’s this afternoon. It’s a neat stock market simulation for blogs. At the time, my blog was worth $1.65, but now it’s up over $9, and I’m in 12th place in the Top 100. I’m filthy, stinking rich!!

On the main page, there is this:

Special Note: Please don’t post a link on the web to the BlogShares Alpha. Feel free, however, to email your friends. This is just for the alpha version before the site is moved to it’s final home in Sorry for any inconvenience and no worries if it should happen (such is the web).

So, I wouldn’t be too surprised if a flood of traffic takes the site down. I was going to be nice and not say anything in the blog, but some people already did. And if my friends tell me to jump off a bridge…

  17. Les says:

    And Sol, what’s up with the lousy 5 shares you bought? Don’t you trust that my value will go up?? 😉

    Oh yeah, I can see this game starting a lot of blog-fights. Hee hee!

  18. Solonor says:

    Yeah, I started out trying to play it to make money, but then it looked like I was rating my friends by how many shares I bought. So, I sold off everything (netting a whopping $23) and bought 5 shares of each. Of course, now I’m gonna hear it from the ones I missed… This game might not be so good after all. (Plus, my ranking tanked, and now my stock is officially overpriced, so I can start dissing it now.)

  19. tanya says:

    mine’s worth almost a quarter a share. if you’re looking for a bargain, redsugar’s the way to go.

    *sigh* dammit, just because i’m low maintenance doesn’t mean i’m cheap…
