How much does the ox weigh? Action needed

Written by Lior Zoref Date 3/2/2012 Time 9:35

Here is Teddy, the ox that will be on stage with me during my TED talk, in order to demonstrate crowd wisdom live.

He has kept me awake during last two nights.

I am frightened… clip_image001

He’s HUGE!

I was thinking more about a baby ox, but the guys at TED do everything big clip_image003

To test how crowd wisdom works prior to my TED talk (and also to have a backup in case of a technical malfunction) I would appreciate it if you could take a good look at the ox and send your weight estimate. Thank you!

It is important to me, and essential for the experiment to work, that as many people as possible will participate (there is no need for personal identification). It will only take 10 seconds of your time.

So here he is, in all its glory, Teddy the Ox.

I will show Teddy and its real weight at the end of the talk (in 23 days, but who counts…)

If by any chance you are going to be at TED or knows someone who is, please don’t tell others about the ox. Let’s try to keep this a surprise :-)

please send your weight estimate here.
