Markup Language For Sports Data Launched

from the cool dept

It’s tough to explain a sports fan’s fascination with statistics to a non-sports fan. I know that, specifically with baseball, I can waste away a perfectly good day analyzing statistics, and some of my friends clearly think I’m nuts. For the folks like me, however, it’s good news that a new standard for sports data has been launched. Of course, my first thought on reading this was that it’s just the first in a long line of completely random XML-based markup languages for just about any odd thing. Though, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. It will make it easier for just about anyone to post statistics to the web, and to manipulate the data in lots of interesting ways.
