…It’s Website Wednesday: Baseball Boss?

Baseball Boss

Baseball Boss is like a Fantasy Baseballer’s dream come true.

Designed to be the ultimate interactive baseball game, users can create teams using real major league players from 1907 or 2007, and then test and tweak those teams until they’re the best that they can be.

Once a team has been assembled, players can then challenge other players in real games, and using a combination of chance and statistics, a computer determines the winner.

New features are constantly being added, and it’s made by Challenge Games, who also developed Duels, so you know it’s going to have some great support behind it.

Are you ready to step up to the plate?

…It’s Music Monday: South By Southwest?

South By Southwest

South by Southwest (AKA SXSW) is an interactive, film, and music festival that takes place every year in Austin, Texas.

Because many of the bands that perform there each year are trying to make it big and break into the scene, they release an official torrent with most of the music from the festival for you to download and enjoy.

This years torrent contained 763 tracks, and played end to end, would be nearly 48 hours of continuous music.

If that sounds like a lot to go through to find what you like, that’s because it is, so Paul Ford decided to listen to them all and give you a kind of cheat sheet for finding the music that you like.

His chart ranks each of the songs on a one to five scale, and gives each a six-word review, making it easy to find the good stuff.

If you’re looking to be on the cutting edge of the music scene, then head on over to the download link and fire up your favorite torrent downloader, because it doesn’t get much rawer than this.

…Bingo is being played at MacWorld again?

MacWorld Keynote BingoSpeaking of MacWorld, John Siracusa from Ars Technica has once again created the Keynote Bingo card to end all Keynote Bingo cards, and it’s the perfect way to get interactive with Jobs’ Fanboy-gasm of an event.

Featuring some gimmies (New Mac Pros, Leopard vs. Vista, Mac Market Share Touted) it also has some dream based risky squares (MacBook Thin, Dockable Mac, New Apple TV) so it’s sure to be fun for everyone.

Just make sure to keep an ear out during the conference for a few “Bingos” if Steve manages to play his cards right.
