BBC's version of a Olympics promo. Great animation. You just have to put up with a short commercial first.
Friday's activity: Create your own extraordinary typographic graphic--whatever. Find a piece of text you like or create a set of related words and paste them into the window. Wordle creates a graphic design using your words. There is some control over font, color and design. Then do a screen capture to use it in your own webpage.
