One of the great things to look forward to this year is the Winter Olympics which will be held in one of the worlds most beautiful cities Vancouver, Canada. I am a huge sports fan and enjoyed the coverage via the web from China in 2008. The internet has revolutionized the way that people watch and participate in the Olympics. It was not that long ago that sports fans were only allowed to watch the content that was presented by the major network that had the rights to the event. Now users can choose to watch almost any event that occurs at the Winter Olympics either live or when their schedule permits. Sun technology sits behind the infrastructure that makes this possible. I am proud to work for Sun Microsystems! Here is a quick video where Ward Chapin, CIO for Vancouver Olympics Committee (VANOC) and Barry Caswell, Directory of IT Security for VANOC take you through what stands behind this incredible event.
