From the horse's mouth
by John Craig
I think I might be starting understand the excitement about new media. There has been much comment this week on the IOC's decision to ban vast majority of athletes from publishing first hand accounts of the Olympics. The reason? To protect valuable and exclusive contracts with broadcasters. This blog [via plastic bag]shows us what we're missing. As well as a great window into the Olympic world for track obsessives, by treading on the big boys' territory it helps me see how different new media really is.
