bike hero!
Posted by Zadi Diaz

What do you get when you mix Guitar Hero and bike riding? Do you even need to ask? Only the most amazing bike ride ever! Apparently it took Madflux and the Brierwood Vandals more than a couple of times to produce this video. It was well worth it.

how will nbc let you watch watch the olympics?

On this past Tuesday's show we discussed NBC's exclusive license for media from the Olympics, but how does that directly affect your enjoying the Olympics?

Are you going to watch the Olympics? Do you want to know the results ahead of time? Are people counting on your tweets for Olympic updates?

I lived in New Hampshire in 2002 during the Winter Olympics. The house where I was staying had the Canadian TV network, the CBC. Watching the Olympics on the CBC was so different than watching it on NBC. The focus of the events were different, the way the story was told was different, and the CBC showed events while NBC was showing biographies.

Will you seek out through the web coverage of the games from other countries? And if you do, would you consider taking that footage and posting it to online video sites so others can see it?

There's a campfire discussion thread on MIX on this topic, as well.
