Twelve Thousand PlayersThis weekend the Infinite sites passed our 12000th registered player so it is as good of a time as any for an update.  

Last month InfiniteHoops received a little press attention during March Madness.  The same thing happened last March, and it is so great that it happened again.  This time we received a mention on "Netted: By The Webbys" and "Thrillist".  We love both of those sites and really appreciate the coverage.  If you are interested in checking out the articles, you can find links on our press page -- http://InfiniteFootball.com/Press.

We are signing up about 500 players a month right now.  As we approach summer in the northern hemisphere, more and more people are looking for games, finding our sites and signing up.  Last month was the highest month ever for page views and visits for InfiniteHoops.com and second highest month across all sites.  Third party identity providers (such as Facebook Connect, MySpaceID and Sign in with Twitter) continue to account for 15% of all new registrations, and Facebook is making up 90% of these.

Engagement on the site continues to be great.  Last month had our highest usage of the game "roster" (where people click "I'm In", "I'm Out" or "Undecided") ever.  Similarly, events generated by users doing things on the site was again all an time high.

Last week we integrated the Facebook Like button on InfiniteHoops and InfiniteSoccer.  We think this is a great way to get the word out about our sites.  If you like us, feel free to give it a click.

So who was the 12,000th player?  A basketballer from New Westminster, British Columbia.

Thanks for making our sites great, everyone.  Tell your friends about us.

Cheers,
Tosh

The Real-Time Web and InfiniteFootballTonight I am releasing a new version of InfiniteFootball that reflects a significant change in the way developers are building new sites of the real-time web.

What is the real-time web?

The real-time web is all about information delivered to you as it becomes available.  For InfiniteFootball users, it means every block on the site is real-time enabled.  When you look at your game roster, you will see your teammates mark themselves as in, out or undecided as they do it.  Your comments and updates blocks will always be up to date.  It means you don't have to refresh to see the latest stuff.  You don't have to wait for something to poll to get new data.  It's all live.

I hope the change is useful to you.  I think you'll see more real-time features all over the web as time goes by.  As always, if you see a bug on our site or have feature suggestions, feel free to send me a message and let me know.

Cheers,
Tosh

Nice.  Our Infinite sports sites have reached four thousand registered players today.  Not bad at all considering we're a home grown shop, self-funded, self-developed...  The last six months or so has been very good for us.  The player registrations and page views are at all time high.  We've even added a site for finding and scheduling pick-up hockey games -- InfiniteHockey.com.

We've also had some great press from a number of sites including the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Toronto's GlobeAndMail.com and the technology blogosphere's ReadWriteWeb.com and more.  Check out our press page!

So who was player number four thousand?  A soccer baller from Santa Cruz, CA.  Invite your friends everybody.  Let's go 5000!

March Madness: Seattle's sports startupsWhat a day.  First I wake up to seeing InfiniteHoops mentioned in Mashable.com, and now the Seattle PI venture reporter, John Cook, has included InfiniteHoops in a post on his Venture Blog on Seattle sports startups.  Have a read.

Quote: Tosh Meston, who runs the InfiniteHoops site, where basketball players can find local pick up games ... created InfiniteHoops because he and his friends simply wanted an easy way to know who would be showing up for games. The site now has about 3,000 members and 600 groups.

Today we launch InfiniteHockey.com, a new social sports network designed to connect people to play the sport of hockey.  If you have a regular game and are looking for players, schedule it with us so players can find it.

The release of InfiniteHockey coincides with some new features in the software that powers each of our sports websites.  


ICalendar Subscriptions

For each group, you can now subscribe to the iCal feed of the upcoming games scheduled by our system.  When looking at a group page, you will see a "Subscribe Calendar" link in the left side menu and calendar icon in the top right corner of the group details block.  If you use a calendaring application like Microsoft Outlook or Apple iCal and you click on this link, you will be subscribed to the game calendar.  Updates will be automatically pulled into your calendaring app so you'll always be up to date.

Social Bookmarking

If you use a social bookmarking service like Delicious, Digg, Faves etc., and you like one of our news items, you can click the "Fave It!" or "Bookmark" buttons and save them to your social bookmarking service.

Display Preferences

By default, we show your next two upcoming games on the main page, but if you play more frequently and want to see additional games, you change it under Preferences / Display Preferences.
