Guide to Olympics online

The Olympics are proving to be a good example of the much-heralded convergence of TV and the Net.

    The Winter Olympics have proven to be a perfect example of the much-heralded convergence of television and Internet content. Viewers have turned to the Net to find out when their favorite events are on, to gripe about the television coverage on message boards, and to find out more information about individual athletes and winter sports.

    In fact, the official Olympic site, powered by IBM technology, has already received 221.9 million hits since the games began on February 7, according to the company. The site already has had more traffic than the official site for the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta, which drew 187 million hits over 16 days.

    The games and the Net are a good fit: Both are global, both have wide appeal, and both can be overwhelming. This NEWS.COM feature provides links to Web sites devoted to specific events, athletes, and general coverage. TV listings, for example, can be found at such sites as Gist and TV Guide.
