The olympics need a geek. Because geeks know how to build fancy internet forms, and the ‘paper olympics’ need this because it it unbelievable that in 2012 people are filling in paper forms.
Paper forms and human error go hand in hand.
So the olympics needs a geek to build an application that lets athletes get registered for their event. When they get registered it needs to send the athelete an email and a text so they know they have been registered. And a reminder function for people who have not registered.
Then hopefully what happened to Val won’t happen again.
