KK and Scales to 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy

KK and Scales to 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy

Kris Krug from Bryght is spearheading an initiative to have a delegations of companies, including Raincity Studios travel to Torino, Italy for the Olympics next month.

Yesterday, Kris and I met with members of New Media BC to explore ways to join our efforts.

At first glance, it looks like we will be there between the 14th to the 26th of February. During the first few days, we will be hosting a few media events and information sessions on “Web 2.0 and the Olympics” at the BC Canada House, next to the Media Centre. We plan on doing some Olympic blogging, podcasts and vcasts on location and attend a few events.

Here’s a little clip from Boris Mann of Bryght, speaking about Mobile Media and the olympics, posted on Now Public

You can expect us to blog more about this over the next few weeks as our planning effort translate into a more concrete plan of action.

For more information or if you would like to join the delegation, please contact me (robert at raincitystudios dot com) or Kris (kris at bryght dot com)
