| ||My Facebook "price of coffee" experiment: 40 countries|

|The other day I asked my friends in Facebook to tell me
- where they are now
- how much is a coffee
- the quality of the coffee|
It may seems trivial but I wanted to test the power of Facebook/internet.
I got 55 replies from about 30 countries + one guy in the middle of the Atlantic ocean (he works on a cruise ship).
I find this amazing.
I think this is the first time in human history that we can get so precise information, so fast and so cheaply (free).
Nobody cares about the price and quality of coffee now of course.
But maybe some of us will find a way to extract valuable information or insight from that.
A startup idea?
