Common Wealth Games 2010: Opening ceremony rocks,CWG a hit in the virtual world too

The 19th CWG games got off to a spectacular start yesterday, with the gala opening ceremony. The giant helium balloon was fantastic (despite the $15 million price tag). Hope the rest of the games build on this and and we see records being broken in each of the 17 sporting disciplines and that the focus remains firmly on sports.

Another thing which the games organizers seem to be getting right is their virtual presence. The website is good, but they have a fantastic social presence through facebook and twitter (115K+ people already like it on facebook and twitter account has 5500+ followers) with quick updates (Nigeria won the first gold medal in weightlifting, Australia won their first in swimming)
