For good or bad, for better or worse, all eyes are on China now, this era of cable, cellphones and the internet.

Is the world order shifting faster at this hour then it ever did?


Ironic how the event is a showcase of _Chinese_ culture, that which was almost erased from history. It certainly is putting on a show for all to see.

Tomorrow's above the fold pic, everyone's office or cafe topic (no, not everyone; only those who watched):

Love the amazing harness work. Would also be interesting to know what the event's technical rider is like.

So, the Olympics opened, and at least the ceremonies ended without harm to anyone, except Brunei's opening events participation and possibly Sultan Bolkiah's face. Other than that, I think we really don't need more bad news than we've already been having. Or had, like in past olympics.

Tomorrow and each day of the event will be a different story. We'll see.
