People love predictions — making them, reading them, competing through them. We see this in fantasy sports, on FiveThirtyEight, and throughout the digital landscape. Those predictions are also powerful: In great enough numbers, crowdsourced predictions can outperform the pundits. Through viral prediction-based journalism and a sleek interface, The Faster Times will deliver more engaging news, crowd-sourced predictions, and better data.


So, how will it work? The Faster Times is a news site unlike any other. Rather than commenting on yesterday's events, journalists write well-informed opinion pieces that make verifiable predictions about tomorrow's news. Readers, in turn, vote on whether the journalists' predictions are right or wrong. Once the results are in, users are notified about the predictions they engaged with and the competition for rankings begins.


In an increasingly fast-paced world, The Faster Times is the first publication to deliver the news even before it happens.
