Strive for many years China finally won the bid to host the 2008 Olymic Games in Beijing.
But everything is’t as easy as it looks.During the Torch Relay of the Beijing Olympic Games,
bands of law breakers tried to obstruct the Torch Relay abroad.
And the opening ceremoney is drawing near day by day. It is said that the terrorists are
trying to produce a terrist attacks to destroy the the opening ceremoney.
Is it truth or not? What gonna hapened during that evening–8th August 2008? Ia there really
be terrorist attacks happen? If so, what kind of terrorist attacks maybe? Will it be like the
second 9.11? When will it happened? Who will launch the action? Is the people who advocate
the indenpence of Taiwan? Is the radical who fancy the split of Tibet? Is the terorist from
Eastern Turk? Is the terrorist from the force Osama bin Laden? Noone knows!
The Chinese Goverment has done almost everything thant can be dione to protect the public
security baseed on the many years experence from the other counries that have host the Olympic
Games.Nomatter how trick the terrorist are, their efforts may go in vain.
We have seen too much horrific things today:

You are always so thoughtful!

Christian will be missed in this arena and I too wish him the best of luck.
I also understand his desires to get back in front of the wave of what he loves, as I too make the same type transitions.

I’ll have more public information in mid July, another benefit to working
for such a large company as IBM you can move around!

Best to Christian in his future endeavors!

Ian thanks for keeping us all close to humanity!

Thanks for the kind words. You are correct, this does not imply that Cisco is walking away from virtual worlds, in fact the interest within the organization has never been higher.

My move is to shake the dust off (or take the handcuffs off) my career and get back to doing what I love most, which is starting new businesses and technologies. Some of these I have listed on my LinkedIn, but there are many more to come.

We’ll work together soon in one of these new roles (and I’m buying the beers in Los Angeles when we intersect again).

Best, C
