2008 Olympics Opening Ceremony
The opening ceremony for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing was absolutely stunning. If you had a chance to catch any part of it, you understand where I’m coming from. I was unable to watch it during the broadcast, but thanks to Google, I was able to find some pictures from the performance.
Along with the pictures, I was able to find a few videos of the performance even though the majority of the ’2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony’ videos aren’t related to the opening ceremony at all. It’s a tragedy really. But either way, I’d like to thank Google for monopolizing the web once again. Seriously, how were they allowed to purchase YouTube? Well, I guess it’s no worse than Adobe purchasing Macromedia. Okay, I take that back. Adobe buying Macromedia did something positive for me. Who doesn’t love the ability to import PSD files into Flash?
Enough with my rant. Back to the story. If you haven’t had a chance to check out any pictures or videos from the opening ceremony, you’re missing out. The picture on the right is from The Boston Globe (Boston.com). Check out the article for more spectacular shots. Also, YouTube has a ton of video coverage of the opening ceremony. You just need to sift through the garbage to find it.
