I don’t think the International Olympic Committee understands the way the internet works.

The social media rules for the Games include this: “The use of Olympic Material transformed into graphic animated formats such as animated GIFs or short video formats such as Vines and others, is expressly prohibited.”

Of course, it’s already begun. How’re they gonna stop it?

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
