As of right now MobileRead has 35,820 members.

Predict the date that there will be 40,000 members.

My guess will be somewhere near August 17, 2009.
Whoa! That was an impressive prediction to make, Tad! Predicted 10 weeks ago and off by only one day!

One month and one day, VR. This is JULY.

Still extremely impressive.

Yesterday my boss signed a form and dated it 9/15/09.

When I took it back to him and told him this was July, not September, he looked at his day/date watch and changed the date to 6/15/09.

Freudian slip maybe?

Possibly lives in the past, looks to the future and doesn't care much for the present.

I will be predicting today, next week and then using a modified Einstein-Rosen Bridge to travel to last month and post my prediction here. Or maybe I will think about it and not bother.......... Or maybe I will think about it and I already haven't bothered or.......... ok I am confused now.

Nice prediction Lady Blue - Congrats

...but, July 13th, 2009, a month after Apple brings out their 115-hour battery, full colour e-ink, ruggedised, backlightable, 7" tablet (1/4" thick) running full-blown OSX with every publisher's books being sold at reasonable prices, DRM-free through iTunes.

I think you can put my chances between "outside" and "snowball's in hell".

Okay, so now that I'm back in the current month, Marc had the closest prediction. So who's going to get the miniature horse for him? Marc, do you have the requisite blanket and carrots ready?

Thanks Pev, but I cheated. I just happened to be looking at the member count at the right time.

Does that disqualify me for the 100,000 karma points, or the flying carpet ride, or the afternoon of sailing with the otters on pshrynk's nameless boat, or whatever was being offered for the correct prediction?
