Olympic progress report video

In this video clip, Bryan and I observe the Olympic progress. You can also see that we’re having a good time. Learn more about Beijing, the Olympics, and how they’re going to get that done in my post on Textura Design.

Byron's book at the Apple Store (Portland)

Ok, wow, Scott (our design and brand manager) sent a Publish and Prosper book sighting note and hey it’s in the Apple Store – down there in the right color, green jacket. Awesome.

Mechanic Mao

This gentleman administers the curbside service center near our hotel. He was nice enough to pose for a photo and proudly displayed his Chairman Mao pin. I expect the Olympics tourist will love him. He refused my offer of a tip for the photo and barked some orders at a mechanic before I left.

Biking through the streets of Beijing offers a myriad of sights… and industrial smells. It ranges from light sweet crude to Kuwaiti sensimilia to high-sulphur coal w/ a hint of turpentine… The more exotic, the more we cracked up at the insanity of it all.

Beijing is a spectrum of activities. Bikes carrying buckets of meat and buckets of tar to baby bakchoy.

We’ve made it out on the bike everyday we’ve been here. Biked at least 10 miles yesterday through heavy rush-hour bike traffic to the Pearl Market (which has everything in the World for 2 dollars). Trying to head out later today to the Lotus Market which is a little closer.

Heaviest bike traffic I’ve ever been in… even more than Amsterdam. We just have jumped in and followed the crowds… http://farm1.static.flickr.com/230/460705490_e478193991_m.jpg

Beijing has bike parking lots near the massive malls. That’s the attendant having lunch.
