While I’m waiting for PunditTracker to step up their game, I still have the world of veridiction (my made-up name for the practice of verifying predictions) all to myself in the blog-o-verse.
With that in mind, I unveil my latest veridiction and it involves Paul B. Allen, founder of Ancestry.com (and probably someone who is confused a great deal with this Paul Allen, a co-founder of Microsoft).
In December of last year, Mr. Allen made the prediction (this CNNMoney story describes it as a “bold prediction”) that Google+ would have 400 million users by the end of 2012. He was so confident about this guess that he even took to – naturally – Google+ to repeat his prediction.
Well, I don’t have to wait until the ball falls in Times Square to verify Mr. Allen’s prediction because the news has come out that Google+ has 400 million users.
Congratulation to Mr. Allen on his correct prediction.
Maybe now he can work on having his own entry in Wikipedia. Just a thought.
BTW, I am one of those 400,000,000.
