movies matter | criticism by maryann johanson

film and modern Olympics born within six months of each other in mid 1890s (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• The metaphor might be a bit stretched here, but I’m intrigued by the fact that film and the modern Olympics were both born within the same six-month period in late 1895/early 1896. Surely that means something… Film: an Olympian spectacle

• I find it hard to believe that with seven billion people living on the planet, someone can’t come up with a new idea… Allergy to Originality

• So, all that money to be made off the Olympics? Why isn’t it spread among the athletes (beyond the few with corporate sponsors)? Cuz, you know, it’s not Coca-Cola and McDonald’s that are drawing viewers… What We Should Learn from Gabby Douglas’s Mom’s Bankruptcy: Treat Our Olympians (And Everyone Else) Better
