Scoreburner.com - A place to share live sports scores with anyone, for any sport, at any level. For the community, by the community!
Scoreburner.com - (In a nutshell) is a social space for people like yourself to share sports scores for any game, anywhere, anytime. This gives anyone on the internet, but most specifically your friends, family, colleagues, or anyone you would typically share with, access to the score!
A Quick Example: You have family that lives out of state, and your daughter is playing in her junior high softball game. If you are at this game, you would be able to go on the mobile version of scoreburner and post the score of the game as it happens with other information as you choose. This would give your family that can't be at the event the ability to see it as it happens and share their support!
We see a unique opportunity to take open information sharing to the next level with regards to sports. It should not just be limited to what you can find on the internet, what you can get from your friends via text message, but open to everyone so that we can be social about sports.
Our Team - is very small currently but we're hoping to expand in the near future. Team introductions and roles in the project.
Joshua Pierce - Josh is the founder, lead developer, not very artistic graphic designer who has built the scoreburner site to be where it is at today. He has a passion for information sharing and always seems to be attached to some sort of conversation outside of where he is currently, physically located. (His wife would prefer his iPhone met it's demise, but she loves him anyways.)
Jon Euerle - Jon is the sports expert, when it comes to sports knowledge he knows his stuff inside and out and has helped to drive t he project forward from a usability standpoint to make sure that it is an optimal experience for all of our users. He also brings a strong analytical background to the plate (see what we did there?) to help us work with our users, to define where we should go next.
Mary Pierce - Motivation coach, cook, life supporter. Mary is Josh's wife, and has been there through the process of him building the initial site. She has put up with his late nights, or early mornings, however you want to look at them while he works towards completing this project and taking it to the next level. Truly a valuable asset.
You - The biggest part of our team is you, our user base. We are here for you, to support you, to make sure you have what you need to share the information that you want to get out there. We aim not to force you into one way of doing things, and saying too bad, this is how it will be. We take comments, we read every single one of them and take them into consideration. We will be running polls, and surveys on the site in the future that will allow you to help us shape the future of open information sharing for sports.
Demo Site - We currently have the site "live" and running for you to give it a whirl. You may at times encounter things that don't work exactly as expected, but you can be sure, by our official launch day we will have 99.9 % of the bugs worked out. (Kind of like a bottle of floor cleaner?) Below are the link(s) you can see more at:

Finally, we would like to convey our sincere thanks to all of you who wish to support us in this initiative. The hosting for a project like this is fairly expensive, and we do not have the means to do it alone. We all work our standard 9-5 jobs, and this has been our extra 30-40 of hours a week to get this project pulled together.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The funding for this project will all be going directly towards providing you, the users, with a better experience as none of us are currently consuming any money from the site for personal expenses. The more we are able to raise, the better experience we will be able to provide through paying for additional development and design resources as well as higher end hosting.
Below we have laid out where the money will be going after we have the full pledge amount.
KickStarter/Amazon Processing Fees - ~10% or $1,000
Reward Fulfillment - ~35% or $3,500
Dedicated Web Hosting Environment - 55% or $5,500
Any additional funds received will be used towards purchasing additional bandwidth, or additional development resources.
