Beijing Olympics 2008

China is set to host the 2008 Olympics this summer, and everyone is watching. It was pretty interesting to be in China a couple years back and see the emerging of the propaganda. It's quite the hype both inside and out of China, as the world's emerging super-power has its chance to display its prowess or not.

Well, who knows if this Olympics will really make or break China and the future of the globe. It may not be that big of a deal. I personally believe both the US and China can coexist as strong world players beyond 2020. There will be growing pains for China and aging pains for us comfortable Americans, but I don't foresee any drastic changes.

Enough on that rant... don't know where that came from. The point of this post was to pass along a tidbit of Olympics news. From Bill Gates address at the CES Show last week, over 3000 hours of on-demand coverage of this summer's Olympics will be available on and other Microsoft/NBC online affiliates. That's great news. Watch what you want, when you want it. Just how we Americans like it.

That's all for now.
