Olympians Surfing The Web

from the things-to-do-in-Sydney-when-your-bored dept

A bizarre article that starts off talking about the “internet shack” at the Sydney Olympics, where athletes line up to check their email on one of 70 computers. Then it goes on to explain how this is the first exposure that some of the athletes are getting to the internet. The article ends with a bunch of different quotes that different athletes put on their web page. From the sound of the article, most of these athletes (no matter where they’re from) are obsessed with US entertainment.
