The BBC’s Olympic Data Team

A theme is starting to emerge: that data management is at its least boring when it concerns sport and music. Oh, and The Wire.

Here’s a great post from the BBC’s Olympic Data Team (that’s data about the Olympics, not data of Olympian standard… although perhaps that too) giving an under-the-hood look at their real-time data delivery system. It all sounds pretty impressive to this technical layman, and if it gets me my sporting stats in jigtime then I’m all in favour.
