Bumping this because I remember the great debate that was the Beijing Cauldron Watch thread and we're within a year and nobody is talking about it. I think they'll go Vancouver style and have a ceremonies cauldron and then one in Olympic park. I think it'll be a hybrid of the Salt Lake Cauldron and the Rio Torch. I have to guess the cauldron in the park would be in the yet to be developed circle and the point of the park. The tv views of the flame surround with the river/bay in the background would be great.
