Let the Games begin!
Every four years (and in between for ice skating and skiing) I get into the Olympics. I made sure to see most of the Opening Ceremonies and diligently watched the Parade of Nations. (Always good to see how preppy the American outfits are, and this year Tonga really didn't disappoint.) Leading up to the games there's been plenty of coverage and scrutiny of Brazil's ability to host the massive international sporting event. But disappointedly I haven't found anything -- yet -- presenting Olympics information in an impressive layout or site. So here's a collection of fairly simple interactives (which really just boils down to maps). If you've found something better out there, let me know!

From the editor: Please note the really good paint brush skills with those Olympic rings. Also welcome new subscribers! Enjoy this month's issue and see everyone back in September. In the meantime let your online creative friends know about Keeping Tabs.


  • A map with Olympic rings telling you which Brazilian wireless provider has the best service at the games (made by my J-school colleague Shelby Carpenter at Forbes).
  • The AP is on it with easy to embed interactive modules -- this one is an overview of water troubles in Rio, and there are also helpful lists of medal winners and other stats.
  • Not so Olympian, but is Facebook making sure this stadium feature is up and running for the Olympics? Because that could make being far away from the events way more up close and personal.
  • For fellow media professionals out there: careful what you GIF
