- Feb 1, 2007I'll address scope / goals / "to do" list shortly in a separate post.
Suffice it to say for now that my goal is most definitely *not* to
duplicate hockeydb.com in CSV format.
As far as the chances of this project killing off hockeydb.com, I
honestly don't think there's much to worry about.
Baseball-reference.com has continued to grow despite the fact that the
underlying data is freely available (there has even been talk of
adding employees in the blog recently).
