Web of fate, a collective prediction network

Via Deepak (FriendFeed), I’ve learnt about an amazing “social experiment”, Collective prediction network,  to visualize and uncover hidden relationships among future and historical events. Users are invited to leave predictions of future events, while an encompassing network-like visualizations allows the identification of patterns “by connecting the past, present and  future”.

The beautiful and dynamic image of the network can be seen here (Web of fate). Predictions range from “I will go to the gym every day” to “oil at $200” to “Oprah will be Democratic VP”. There is an interactive calendar at the site, so you can see what was being predicted when.
