Description

This event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 27 at 6:00 p.m.  Traders, join us for a Google Hangout with the CEO of Aristotle, John Aristotle Phillips!  John has earned a reputation as a technology industry innovator and valued advisor in the applications of technology to the Democratic process. He first gained world-wide notoriety when, as a 20 year old undergraduate physics major at Princeton, he designed an atomic bomb. His thesis advisor at the time was Dr. Freeman Dyson and the book, Mushroom: The story of the A-Bomb Kid, which he wrote with his college roommate at the time, David Michaelis, is currently being made into a motion picture.   John was drafted to run for Congress in 1980 and 1982, during which he won an upset primary victory by being the first candidate anywhere to employ computers to politics. The experiences from these campaigns led him and his brother, Dean, to found Aristotle. Aristotle is today the global leader in providing technology to political campaigns and organizations, offering a seamless solution for campaign software, voter data, PAC and grassroots software and services.  Aristotle is non-partisan, and has played a pivotal role in US politics. Every U.S. president—Reagan through Obama—has used Aristotle services and hundreds of candidates and causes today rely on Aristotle to influence decisions at ballot boxes worldwide. A long-time enthusiast for the predictive power of markets, and inspired by their accuracy and popularity, John and the engineers at Aristotle teamed with Victoria University of Wellington to launch PredictIt.org, which is today the largest prediction market in the United States.  We will host a live Q&A where you’ll get the chance to jump in and ask your own questions.
