Wolfram-Alpha: a New Fantasy Baseball Tool

Posted in News, Rant with tags , , on May 5, 2009 by cuzitsmybday

You may not have even heard of Wolfram-Alpha, but you will know about it soon. It’s the scientist’s answer to Google and in my opinion it’s much needed. I’m pretty sick of using Google to search for things and turning up one pile of garbage after another. If you somehow happened to stumble onto this site through Google, then you know what I mean.

I’m not going to get into the details on what Wolfram-Alpha is, but it’s coming, and I know that it will be loaded with baseball stats and stats for every other major sport (maybe even the minor ones). Depending on how sortable the stats are and how everything works, this could be a great new tool for all of us fantasy sports enthusiasts.

Do some research and keep an eye out. It’s supposed to be launching soon. Google has answered with something of their own, but I’m going to check out this Wolfram-Alpha thing. Some have gone so far as to say that it will change the internet forever. Well, that’s going a little too far because we all know what the internet is really for and I don’t see that changing any time soon…but maybe it’ll change it a little bit and head the net back in the direction it was intended for in the first place.
