I have been asked to write a piece on Oscar Pistorius participation in
the olympics (and not the paralympics). Not being very sports interested
myself, I would be curious to hear what more sports interested members
of the list (if any) make of the whole thing.
Normalization of enhancement, the olympics as a biomedical freak show,
personality cult, or recognition of enormous tenacity?
(At least the opening ceremony gave a special recognition to Sir Tim
Berners-Lee - when was the last time a scientist or technologist was
honored like that?)
