Lubos Motl is the 822 smartest person playing blogshares.....
Lubos Motl invests in Not Even Wrong.....
What do Harvard Asst. Profs. spend their time on....


Usually Eli settles on a title fairly quickly, but this one is so snarkable that it is tough. Turns out that Lubos plays in Blogshares and his holdings include Peter Woit's Not Even Wrong and Wm. Connolley's old Stoat.

Now, what, you ask is Blogshares?

BlogShares is a fantasy stock market where weblogs are the companies. Players invest fictional dollars on shares in blogs. Blogs are valued by their incoming links and add value to other blogs by linking to them. Prices can go up or down based on trading and the underlying value of the blog. No actual ownership of blogs is transfered. BlogShares is purely a fictional marketplace.

No, sad to say. Great growth opportunities over there I hear.

"BlogShares is purely a fictional marketplace."

Undoubtedly has much in common with "String World" -- fantasylands both.
