Yesterday our team arrived early at our Yaletown location to host the last days of our broadcast with the 3 live IP cams we've been broadcasting live to the planet 24X7 for the entire length of the 2010 Olympics.
Some times weren't so exciting - like when no one was around - yet the Vancouver Police were way interested the night after we installed them and 'no one was around'.
Yahoo - our across the street neighbors had just moved in with all their gear. Thieves drove up in the wee hours of the AM, smashed the windows and cleaned the entire place out! Vancouver's finest wanted our images of the time period when 'nothing was happening'.
Fans came and went - but the most exciting was yesterday by far. Crowds were gathered at some places since 7AM as we made our way to Yaletown.
Even thought it was early, since the game was at noon - the city was a buzz. People were everywhere!
On the Canada Line, we have to push our way in complete with our computer and camera equipment - then push our way out again when we arrived.
We captured every second of the game in hi res format all the while being transmitted to our Internet sites while a world could watch. When we were reviewing some of the stored images this AM, we thought the rest of the planet may way to relive the moment that the winning goal was made!
Following yesterdays game downtown Vancouver was crazy with positive energy following the win.
We were driving around in our classic XK 150 Jaguar - the same series of racing cars that won the Le Mans 24 hours during the Le Mans 24 hour races back in the late '50s - putting Jaguar on the map for world race cars.
People were going crazy while getting their pics taken.

Subject: Last Day Of The 2010 Winter Games (Posted on Feb 28, 2010 at 09:16AM)
The last day of the 2010 Winter Olympics. We are all anticipating another gold medal today and the lights on the floating barge in Coal Harbour to be lit up again.
It seems like the games have only just began, yet so much went on in such a short time frame that like a dream it might have been a lifetime.
There never seemed to be a shortage of people going back and fourth in Yaletown though and the creative ways us understated Canadians rose to the occasion to show our support for our country and our athletes.
Downtown Vancouver is going to be alive early this morning as fans line up to pass through the heavy security when Canada faces off against the United States in hockey at noon today PST to see who is going to win gold.
We are going to be live in Yaletown repositioning our live webcams to get the best angle for viewing.
It was pretty amazing to be involved in a very small way with the 2010 Olympics by sharing live images to people that couldn't make it here to Vancouver.
I am wondering how the city is going to be after all of this, it seems like many don't want the party to ever end.
