Inauguration Day Live

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

The Official Travel Notes Blog

As the sun rises over America and sets in the Far East, millions - if not billions - of people who can't make it to Washington, D.C. will be glued to their television sets or sitting on the edge of their chair; close to a computer screen with an Internet connection.

If you're one of the latter, and overloaded servers don't start crashing under the strain, then here are some suggested online resources to keep an eye on.

Live Inauguration Day Coverage

Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies
As THE official source from the United States Government, this should probably be the first place to click to.

If you arrive at the senate early, you could get yourself into the inaugural atmosphere with some historical background on inaugurations past; maybe with a briefing on the chronological order of previously sworn-in Presidents.

The Live Show starts at 9.30am EST for video coverage and 11-11.30 am for audio of the swearing-in ceremony.

CBS Inauguration 09:
The all-day simulcast will be followed by an exclusive Inaugural webcast at 10pm EST; hosted by Katie Couric, who will look back at the historic day with a host of CBS reporters, political experts, pundits and special guests.

C-SPAN's Inauguration Hub:
Watch the 'control room' live video feeds from key events surrounding the 2009 Presidential Inauguration. Direct your own programming by clicking on the streaming thumbnails that look the most interesting for that moment.

CNN on Capitol Hill:
Watch live streaming video with your Facebook friends right beside you.

Fox News:
Their Hulu coverage is not a lot of good for viewers outside of the United States, but you can catch up with the Inauguration Blog.

MSNBC Inauguration Dashboard:
Latest coverage from Washington, D.C.; with video, slideshows and blogs.

Follow TravelTweet on Twitter Twitter and Current TV:
Starting at 11.30am EST, real-time Twitter messages - or 'tweets' - will be added to the live broadcast of Barack Obama's Inauguration. You'll need to add #current to your 140 character tweet.

Before the event, you can keep up with what others are saying on Twitter by visiting #inaug09 or #inauguration.

You can even follow TravelTweet on Twitter - Tweet Tweet.
