Google Prediction Markets and Trade Volume

The Industry Standard has written up an overview on the prediction markets Google runs internally to improve their business decisions as well as learn how employees exchange information. A little tidbit caught my eye:

With about 1,500 employees making 80,000 "trades" over the past two and a half years, Google officials say it's the largest corporate experiment with prediction markets they are aware of.

The reason this caught my eye was because we have about a third of the users but have done about 180,000 trades in a year and a half. It's interesting to see the differences in trade volume between our groups of people.
