Some Canadian Humor

I love how the technical failure during the 2010 Olympics Opening Ceremony was parodied in the Closing Ceremony last night. A clown electrician raised the fourth cauldron which had failed to come up from the floor opening night. And Catriona Le May Doan, who had awkwardly waited for it to come up the first time around, finally got her chance to light it.

As meetings and events increasingly rely on big production effects to wow and energize attendees, hopefully we can take a cue from the folks in Vancouver: When technology fails you, be the first to poke some fun at yourself.
