London and the 2012 Olympics

Hugh put up a post on his opinion of London and the 2012 Olympics.

Then Seth put up his.

Its not often I’ll disagree with Seth, but to quote Hugh:

Anybody who’s ever studied the Olympics knows what a huge political and economic undertaking it is.

Olympics is big business! Lots of money, lots of ego, lots of politics.

Seth says:

“It is an invitation to take part and be involved.”

If you are paying money to someone who talks like this, may I suggest you stop? And if you work for someone who talks like this, time to look for a new gig.

My question to Seth is: Who is the target audience here?

My mum doesn’t know what a blog is and has difficulty sending text messages.

But she LOVED it when the Olympics came to Sydney! The Sydney Olympics had a profound impact on her life. She isn’t an athlete, hates sport, but LOVED the spirit!

The invitation to take part and be involved. That is my mother to a tea!
