Atlas and the 2006 World Series of Poker!?

Steve Marx is a geek! And yes, I mean that as a compliment. I introduced Steve back in June as our new "Atlas" Technical Evangelist. If you read that post, you may recall that he came in 35th in the 2005 World Series of Poker, a fact that will prevent us from ever playing poker at a team morale event. ;-)

Well, Steve is off to participate in the 2006 tournament, and to keep everyone informed of his progress, he's created an Atlas application that uses a voice-response phone service (that he can quickly call when he steps away from the table) to deliver up-to-date information via an RSS feed. The combination of technology is way cool, and you'll want to read the FAQ for all of the technical details. I think you'll find the recording of a sample call to be quite interesting.

Good luck at the tournament, Steve!
