My ambition is to advance the state of quizbowl technology; I believe it has much more to offer. Here are some examples of quizbowl technology projects I am working on or might work on in the future:

  • Detailed stats reports from specific tournaments (example)
  • Long-term archival of detailed stats reports (example)
  • Building the first ever buzz point datasets (example)
  • Development of an open detailed stats platform
  • Open repository for questions, stats, and other datasets
  • Videos, live streams, graphics, and other media (example)
  • Packet reader interfaces with buzz points, simplified answerlines, customizable pronunciation guides (example)
  • Paper scoresheet OCR (example)
  • File format and object model standardization
  • Quizbowl technology design documents (example)
  • Documentation of quizbowl software and its history (example)
  • Automatic detection of errors in question writing (example)
  • Analysis of thematic and linguistic trends in question writing
  • Aesthetic (“feng shui”) packet permutation generator (example)
  • New features for the Quizbowl Resource Center
  • Practice tools
  • and more ideas that haven't even come to mind yet!

Every 4 weeks, I will try to post an update and deliver rewards, but prod me if I'm not punctual enough.

What do I need your support for?

  • Make it sustainable for me to continue working on such projects
  • Keep quizbowl technology free and open
  • Web hosting
