Adam’s new college and pro-sports aggregator site: Sportsify

September 27th, 2008

The most successful web geek I’ve known personally, Adam Howell, launched another site. It’s his first Django-powered site, and which for no legitimate reason makes me feel a little proud inside (when we worked together at the Winston-Salem Journal, Adam started down the Ruby on Rails path at about the same time I started down Django’s trails).

Sportsify aggregates what the major sports sites (CNN, ESPN etc.) are saying about upcoming games / races / mathces (NCAA Football, NBA, MLB, NASCAR, NFL), and turns that aggregation into a consensus pick on who’s going to win. According to the blurb on the site: “Sportsify combines the picks and power rankings from dozens of sports sites to build more accurate consensus picks and rankings.”

According to the blurb Adam wrote up on his personal site, “You can think of Sportsify like a Rotten Tomatoes/Metacritic for sports picks and power rankings, aggregating all the #1’s and weekend favorites from around the web into one site.”

I like it.
