THE Sports Techie Online Community.

THE Sports Techie Online Community is 3,000 – 1,500 – 500. What does that mean? Those are the statistics that make up the social media numbers of our engaged Sports Techie online community.

How big a market is sports technology?

The Tron Lightcycle is Sports Technology

How big a market is sports technology?

Technology has brought a sea change in the sports world. Though earlier its use was originally seen as a deterring factor, wherein as people called its presence as something which mars the spirit of sports, however, things like fair game display and good sportsmanship surfaced with the use of technology. The sports technology has simply made a number of sports popular among the masses. Hence even the most expensive sports have become accessible to common man. The use of technology in sports is not just restricted to get instant replays or giving headset to coaches or rending microphone to referees and umpires. In fact, sports technology is seen taking new leap apart from these named early discoveries...

Fifty Thousand Sports Techie Tweets

Using sports technology in the city gives you more sport options

Fifty Thousand Sports Techie Tweets. That is right, 50,000 tweets as THE Sports Techie at @sportstechieNET on Twitter. I decided to write this blog about what the future might hold for Sports Techie at tweets number 100K, 500K and 1 Million. First, a recap of what getting to 50K was like from here in Seattle.

No question, sports technology is now in the mainstream. I began Sports Techie before the South African World Cup in 2010 with tweet number one and a humble Klout score of 5. Why this is important is that as of today, FIFA has finally decided to implement goal line technology...

After meeting Oscar Pistorius at the Global Sports Forum Barcelona 2012, Sports Techie asked this question to our first ever guest blogger, Claudia Somerfield, in hopes to better understand this issue from a third party perspective with the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London soon to begin.

THE Sports Techie at GSFB

Techie is the new Geek at the Global Sports Forum Barcelona. The two trending Sports Techie topics at GSFB 2012 were Social Media and the Olympics Games, with a third, Techie, the other focus of this blog. The following are sports business experts: Seb Coe, Mark Tatum and Eric Cantona. Many Americans and Internationals might know one of these names; however, I would be impressed if you knew who all three people are. Thing is, each of these people is a Sports Techie.

Before I tell you who they are and what they spoke about I need to elaborate a bit more about why Techie is the new Geek at the #GSFB. Coming into this event as an official blogger gives you automatic Klout with the Speakers, Delegates and Hosts...
