The logo launch event was one of 2012's biggest mistakes in my opinion. They launched it in a big dark room, told us all the amazing applications it could have and then left it for ages without proving to us what it could do. They should have launched some kind of interactive website to go with it, beamed it around London in lights, or something, anything which allowed people to engage with it from the outset. As it was it was left cold which was a mistake, especially for a logo as challanging as this one.

Rio's logo launch party was done really well by contrast and got people engaged with their logo from the off.

Errm you do know half those pics are of Los Angeles 84 and those pics of London are just artists impression from the brochure to show what items can be put up. The local councils will then choose what street decorations they wish to use. You can't judge it until it's reality. I've actually seen teasers of what my local authority will be putting up, and it actually looks pretty nice.

I love how obvious it is what is permanent and temporary, and the commentary made mention of this fact when it talked about the design of the building.

The diving was excellent as well, but all eyes were on the stunning venue. I don't think I'll ever tire of visiting.

After the Games the Olympic Park will be transformed into the largest urban park created in Europe for more than 150 years

Correct me if I am wrong, but the biggest urban park in Europe won't be -after 2012- the Hellenikon Metropolitan Park in Athens (1,000 acres)?
