The Olympics have finally begun, and many of us spent the weekend glued to the TV in an effort to follow the athletic meeting of nations. But now the work week has started and withdrawal has set in. Never fear! We have collected some of the best ways to keep up with the Olympics–without too much distraction from work–or to round out your experience if you are lucky enough to be watching during business hours.
First, a look at the London 2012 kick-off, the opening ceremony. The high volume event had so many popular moments, it is hard to choose a favorite. Which ones were most discussed? The following share of voice, drawn from Visible’s® monitoring platform Visible Intelligence®, analyzes the most prominent terms for the night. Not surprisingly, the James Bond scene between the Queen of England and Daniel Craig (it feels ridiculous to even type those names together!) was the most discussed of the evening, followed by discussion around the ceremony’s director Danny Boyle, Rowan Atkinson’s “Mr. Bean” appearance, Paul McCartney’s closing performance, David Beckham’s torch delivery, JK Rowling and Kenneth Branagh.
