8.8.08

The number "8" is considered lucky by people in China. No wonder then, that the world's largest event in sports, hosted in Beijing this time, begins on 8.8.08, today. Spanning just over a fortnight, with approximately Ten thousand five hundred athletes participating in about 302 events in 28 different sports, it would be absolute fun to spend some time watching this great event. But in an age of participation it isn't sufficient to spend time viewing the same, but would be great to be a part and parcel of it, for we all know these events only show up once in four years. After-all, the spirit of participation is one of the well-known motto of Olympics.

I feel proud to share with you the fact that Sun has enabled a way to help you participate in Beijing Olympics 2008, using MyPicks Beijing 2008, a new social networking game for Facebook, allowing fans of 2008 Beijing Summer Games to compete online. The press release about it is here. So start picking your winners in here.

Sun's association with Beijing Olympics 2008 does not end with a Facebook application. "NBC Universal selected Sun to provide the technology platform for its official website NBCOlympics.com. The site is supported by several Sun Servers, allowing delivery of digital content to viewers including live streaming of events, video archives of completed events, blogs and more."
