You would think that by being in the crowd at a World Series game you would be fairly anonomyous to the rest of the world. Sure, you’re probably texting, tweeting, posting and checking in but that is limited to your own social network. And, you are choosing to do this. Unless you’re caught on camera by Fox we don’t know you’re there.
Thanks to a nifty little feature from Major League Baseball called Tagoramic – this has all changed.
MLB has taken high resolution panoramic crowd shots at all the playoff games to date. No big deal – you’ve seen photographs like this before:
So, if you know your buddy is in section 217, row E seat 13 – you can zoom in on him munching on a dog. What’s more – you can tag him on Facebook. Think of how surprised he’ll be when this pops up on his wall.
I have to admit – this is pretty powerful. To think that a center field camera shot can produce resolution like this is extraordinary.
It also means you can’t pull a Ferris Beuller and sneak out to a game.
