An insiders view of the olympics

The Olympics is over and I guess the dust is slowly settling on the euphoria surrounding the so called stupendous show India put on this time (1 to 3 medals is a 200% improvement).

I just found out that IBM gave Ideapad laptops and video cameras to some of the athletes and got them to cover the Olympics with pictures, blogs, tweets, etc. IBM them aggregated all of those entries in a website called Voices of the Olympic Games. Be sure to visit it and get an insiders view of the olympics.

Abhinav Bindra is one of the atheletes who is part of this initiative and you can read his blog by visiting

Rajyavardhan Rathore is the other Indian athelete who is part of this program
