Hi Adtya, sorry for the delayed answer. I did buy the domain “Lokad.com” after a meeting at the Entrepreneurship Club of the INSEAD thinking about a business where local ads would be delivered through networked digital screens located in bars, queue lines in movie theaters, cheap restaurants, … Intuitively, the idea was that at some point in a not-so-distant future, delivering ads the digital way would be cheaper than traditional paper prints, because you need no manpower to “update” your ads. After a while, we did give up the idea because of the huge investments that would have been needed to kick-off such a business. Then, I started a software forecasting project, and the domain name was recycled for that purpose.
