Fabulous opening ceremony reported in US media, I am looking forward to watching tonight when I get home.
I imagine we will all be watching for some IDNs to be used in advertising around the various Olympic venues!

i don't see idns, but i see dignitaries sweating away in the sweltering heat in their black suits. It is 32 degrees and 90% humidity in the stadium!

Nice writeup and tribute to the opening ceremonies. 10,000 performers, 15,000 costumes. I love the part where he surmises
the British delegation for the 2012 Olympics watching the festivities and thinking "now how in the world will we ever top this?"
Congratulations China!

Re: Bijing Olympic Games is On

Just watched the whole thing....just spectacular. As the announcer said "it's time to retire the trophy" for greatest Olympics opening ceremony. A shame that North Korea and South Korea (governments) couldn't reach a simple compromise and allow their athletes to march into the stadium together.

We won't.

Britain's will no doubt be much lower key. Very funny, with a lot of irony most foreigners just won't get, at least not initially.
