The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

International Olympic Committee blog visit.

There is nothing more likely to remind one how small the world is, than starting a blog. Yesterday, I wrote about the Youth Olympic Games planned for 2010. Today, someone from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) read the article I had written about them: amazing.

More specifically, someone whose IP address is called Comite International Olympique, from Lausanne, Vaud, Switzerland, with the domain name: "", read the article in question. What I find even more incredible is the manner in which they were alerted. Someone who had read the article in the twenty four hours after I wrote it, sent an email to someone they knew at the International Olympic Committee, enclosing a link to the article - and they opened it and read it. That, to me, is rather surprising. It just goes to show how small and interconnected this modern world we live in, is.

I posted an article, from Singapore, addressed to no-one in particular, leaving it to chance who might see it. Twenty-four hours later, the organization I spoke of - the International Olympic Committee (IOC), had been notified of it and had read it. Phenomenal.
