CardTechie.com attempts to merge trading cards and technology. There are many great things happening on the web currently. But not a lot of these web technologies are being used in the trading card community. I believe these technologies can benefit collectors and make the hobby better.
Technologies around the web have become social with sites like Facebook and Twitter. It is now easier to share and contribute by creating a blog. Many companies have opened their platforms up to use your data anywhere. Mobile computing is going mainstream with the advent of technologies like the iPhone and Android.
There are some people creating some great applications for trading card collectors. CardTechie.com will share these sites and applications and attempt to find out more about them. I have some great ideas of my own that I will provide some awesome benefits to the trading card community.
My name is Josh Harrison and I am a web developer. I believe in being transparent and open. And I think that doing so can benefit a community tremendously. On the CardTechie.com blog, I will share ideas on what can be done to advance web technologies and also share what others are doing.
If you are interested in contributing to CardTechie.com, please contact me. I would love to have your insight and opinions. Please share your ideas and comments and let me know what you think. I look forward to getting to know others around the trading card community.
