Now that the Olympics are over, we can get down to business
I don't know about you, but I'm glad it's over. I spent too many nights over the past two weeks staying up late to watch supposed underage Chinese gymnasts, Spanish basketball players, and a bolt of lightning. I guess the HD had me mesmerized. This is only the second time we've had HD Olympics (winter 2006). In 1964, I'm sure there are many who can recall being plum happy to see the first Olympic games broadcast in color. Technology...it changes rapidly and keeps us buying gadgets and swimmers keep having to buy new swimsuits to keep up with the gold. We're living in an age where the next best thing is right around the corner, everyday. Art is part of this roller coaster, being redefined by technology, almost to a point where it seems pointless to even bring up the technology used to create it. Five years ago it was cutting edge, today it is just the standard. Anyway, go team USA.....and the rest of the world for that matter, because we're all connected in ways we could have never imagined back when the tv was just a b/w screen.
BTW, this is the welcome wagon for FA331.....enjoy the class.
