London 2012 Olympic volunteers have been banned from posting updates and photos to TwitterFacebook and other social networks.

While at the same time:

London is set to roll out a massive Wi-Fi network as it prepares to host the 2012 Olympic Games. The best part? It’s absolutely free to use.

It’ll be fascinating to watch as the internet continues to transform those long-standing traditional global events and the way they are broadcast and reported on.

Incredible time to live in.
