2010 Olympic torch

Not sure if this has been discussed yet, but there’s a nice photo essay here of the Olympic Flame on its travels of the globe and now Canada, before it gets to Vancouver for the Winter Olympics. I like these pictures…

I’m not sure of the cultural significance of the Ambiguously Swoopy Form (too lazy to goggle it) of the torch itself, but I mostly like it.

I thought I read something about the torch being designed and engineered by Bombardier. I think that the inspiration was said to be the snow drifted mountains outside Vancouver.
