Just in time for Thanksgiving and the holiday season, we're pleased to announce that in working with JumpTV Sports, Georgia, James Madison and Penn football fans can be the first to create personalized season record books from existing online content! Fans can now automatically flow information from their team's official site (such as player profiles, articles and professional photographs) into a structured FanBook product, and then add their own stories and photos from the season. Thank you to Kimberly Maul of The Book Standard, Dennis Bouchand of 901am and Dennis Hays of Photo News Today for helping us get the word out quickly.
Beginning today, high school sports fans in York and Adams counties in Pennsylvania can also create their own personalized PlayBooks. YAVarsity.comis a next generation high school sports Web site covering 22 schools and sporting events in the York and Adams County Interscholastic Athletic Association. Players and their fans can now easily flow the blog postings, scores and photographs that are relevant to them into a structured PlayBook product, where their own memories of the season can be added and preserved for years to come.
I should mention that SharedBook's Web-based application is fully collaborative, meaning that individuals can always invite others into their personal book making space to contribute additional information if they choose. Anyone invited into the space can also make their own book if they like.
A couple of weeks ago we introduced Create-A-Cookbook with Allrecipes.com. We owe a very belated thank you to several individuals who took a first look: Kimberly Maul of The Book Standard, Allen Stern of CenterNetworks, Ron Hogan of GalleyCat, Jim Lyons of Jim Lyons Observations, Andy Angelos of Mashable, Nancy Stohs of Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Minic Rivera of 901am, Michael Cairns of PersonaNonData here and here, Dennis Hays of Photo News Today, Edmund Jenks of Symblogogy and Dory Devlin of Yahoo! Tech.
We sure have a lot to be thankful for ... Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
