Wow, considering how good the Beijing 2008 ceremonies were, this one's pretty darn good. It's awesome that Jacques Villeneuve got to carry the flag; I'm an F1 fan and it's even more awesome that a Canadian world champion took part.

Also, RIP Nodar Kumaritashvili. That was an extremely tragic event and it was seen in the atmosphere throughout the ceremony.

Seeing as how my father was a lumia artist, I really enjoyed the show!

Thomas Wilfred, the "first" lumia artist...

Is that your father? There're some nice pieces of artwork in there.

No, but my Dad did stuff like that in live performance on TV in the 50's and 60's. I see his influence all over the place now as a new generation of artists imitates, in computer art, what they saw as kids on TV.

Here's a link where they talk about his work.
