Nike, Technology and the Olympics

Nike's using high technology to make super-lightweight shoes for the Beijing Olympic athletes. Technologies called flywire and lunar foam! Amazing how technology impacts all aspects of human development, even as other behavioral issues are being brought to the limelight by YouTube and television - folks tried to extinguish the Olympics torch to protest the human rights violations by China in Tibet. Even the Onion got onboard with its own brand of humor.

While it is always easy to use world forums such as the Olympics to express opinions on world issues and politics, I think it is best to leave sports, global camaraderie and the athletes' aspirations alone! Let the Olympics be about the athletes!
