08.08.08 is indeed a date to look forward to for many people. Mostly because it is the day the Beijing 2008 Olympics will be launched, and the eyes of the world will be focused on Beijing.
Well, it is also the date our new website, www.ccube.tv, will be launched. We have been working on the website for many months now, and it just so happens that the website will be going live at the exact same date as the launch of the Olympics.
So I thought why not go head-to-head with that quintuple-ringed entity? Well, it's hard to beat the historic Beijing Olympics, but I think we can look at it from a different angle. As a renowned photographer once said: "Creativity is looking at one thing from different angles."
So if you exercise a little of your creativity, you'll find that we beat the Beijing Olympics in terms of the time of launch. Our launch at 12:00am, the very first second of the auspicious date of 08.08.08, is a good 20 hours ahead of Beijing 2008's opening ceremony. So cCubeTV 1, Beijing Olympics 0.
As for the competition from other aspects, we'll just leave that to history. But one thing's for sure - both events represent significant milestones for us, as cCubeTV and as Asians.
Finally, my prayer for cCubeTV and the Beijing Olympics is that both events will mark the beginning of new chapters, both in our humble company, and in the Asian media industry
Let's go break some records!
