  • Neat project. Thanks for sharing, Jeff. Though having experienced the 2010 games, one has got to wonder if the IOC will crack down on these businesses and/or the project/book….

    • Alessandro

      then, a class action would be required… do they think Olympic games are a private property? Can’t believe how far we’ve gone with this finance/market silly stuff

  • like it! more illegals please!

  • Shanelee
