Olympics event tracker from NYT

Aimed at letting people find events they like and manage a personal viewing schedule, the Times’s Olympics Tracker offers a lot more utility than the more traditional schedule grid provided by NBC at its Web site.

Why? Because the NBC grid is “We show you, and you look,” and the NYT tracker is, “You look, you choose; we help.”

For even more added value, the tracker enables people to find and open all NYT stories about the events that interest them. Sweet.
