i remembered watching the super-bowl via esp.com and even mentioned my experience in a previous post. well, tonight espn proves to be a winner for me again. while watching the dbacks and randy johnson stomp on colorado, i moved to espn.com and their gamecast view...it is incredible. i didn't have a tv nearby, so i have no idea how out-of-sync it was, but the play-by-play visuals were great, down to the diamond being the shape of the field where they are playing...here's a shot:
when a ball is hit, they even have an animated baseball going in the direction of the play and everything...well done crew, well done. i know where i'll be peripherally watching from now on...espn.com gamecast!
people are saying guy kawasaki is behind this latest truemors.com site. while i'm starting to see less value in twitter, when i opened up truemors i shook my head. it certainly looks/acts/feels like a twitter-ish type application...and the content surely has parity with twitter posts...here's a sample of some of the "rumors" posted:
- "Jello wrestling for Charity? Yes, it happens."
- "the iphone gives you herpes"
- "hey mark, give me a call later and we'll get dinner"
- "the truemors homepage is easy to spam."
- "Guy Kawasaki started this up? must be losing touch with reality."
- "I heard that this site is going to fail miserably."
i'm leaning toward the last one...i just don't get it -- another place for everyone to post a random, meaningless, post of nonsense?
or at least that is what i think is happening ;-)
