At the risk of sounding out of touch, who are these people and why would I want to spend $20/min talking to them?

Actually I do know a few of these names...

I don't think one could pay me enough to waste time talking to any of these folks though...

while i think this is absurd and would never do it, it's a sure sign that we live in a very wealthy nation. this kind of disposable income is amazing.

such practices are common on wall st. firms like gershon lehman have thrived by setting up expert networks where you pay to speak to an expert in a field. i personally find them to be of little value as they just tell you what they told the last 10 guys and lead to groupthink, but the fact that they are thriving seems to indicate than many disagree with me on that.

viva la market.

There are not even celebrities.....

They had 15 minutes of fame (many of them for bad reasons).

Why would someone pay $720/hr to talk to the Octopussy?

Thanks, Jon, I was afraid it was just me.
