I thought I would write a quick link happy post regarding Barack Obama’s Inauguration as the 44th President of United States.
The main event locally here in Australia kick’s of around 3:30am EDT with all but SBS covering the event live. ABC1 3:25am – 5:00am, CH7 3:00am – 6:00am, CH9 10:55pm – 5:30am, CH10 1:30am – 6:00am and SBS will have a special report at 12:30pm.
Aside from most likely being tuned into ABC1 on the ‘box’ here at this odd hour of 3:30am in the morning the remainder of my multitasking efforts will revolve around Twitter and finding great people to follow the conversation with. I will kick it off with Andy Carvin who is the Social Media Guy for NPR and the NPR team have done some great work making websites and the tools for NPR to give it’s all on this momentous day in history.
To simply track what is going on over at Twitter without worrying exactly what Twitter is and or can do simply use the search engine and with these ‘tags’:- #inaug09, Obama, Inauguration & #Current and you should come upon some great links and conversations from people all over the world who are watching any of the above links live talking about the event.
CNN who I left off the above list are also going down a slightly different track and have teamed up with Facebook for CNN.com Live and have also teamed up with the Microsoft Photosynth to Capture The Moment of Oath of Office.
