Plus: we kick off a new regular feature summarizing the best content from the day’s Olympic events.
This week, NBC announced it will use Storify throughout the Olympics to capture the best tweets, Facebook posts, videos, and photos from the Olympic Games. Too bad the rest of the Internet already did that for them, while NBC failed to broadcast the opening ceremony live.
