First Dissent: Visualizing Bouldering Scoring

Video???? After last week's episode, I needed to follow up and talk about how we communicate scores on livestreams. New TzA scoring or not, big and small events need to do better at presenting scores and relevant information to audiences watching from home. 

NEW: Stephen Briggs took some time to put together a mockup based on this video (see below and click to enlarge), and it looks a whole lot better than whiteboard sketches! Stephen chose to order the climbers based on only problems that all climbers have already attempted, in this case, after the first two problems. Definitely a plausible way of accounting for the way athletes will jump up and down the scoreboard as they move through the comp. Thanks Stephen!
