I've just submitted my Olympic 2012 "Games Maker" application

Yes, I've just volunteered to be one of thousands of "games makers" at the London 2012 Olympics.

I hope my skills in information technology, radio communications (I'm a licensed radio amateur) and media / PR stuff will be of some use to the organisers.

Mind you, I'll probably end up in the kitchen washing zillions of dishes or have to go with rubber gloves to unblock the lavatories. But hey, I'm so glad the Olympics are coming to London and I want to give something back for the 25 years I have enjoyed living in this amazing world city.

Secretly I hope they need someone to support mobile apps, keep their computer systems going, and process all that data generated during the games. I can do that! 

For more on the London 2012 Olympics and becoming a games maker go to  because I may need help supporting that app ... or unblocking that loo....!

  1. Any mention of Tesco becoming a 2012 sponsor and issuing pin badges? They could easily sell thousands online/instore.
    Sainsburys are sponsoring and producing 160,000 of just one pin!
    As a Tesco employee and keen pin collector I would love to see it......


As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
