Many of us will be watching Obama's inauguration the old-fashioned way, on television, but for those of you working tomorrow, the internet may be an easier way to follow all the action. At noon tomorrow, more wired and wireless devices will be connected to the internet than ever before. Live coverage from Washington will stream through several websites so you don't miss a moment. Some people have made special plans. Lynne Barst of Leland said, "I'm going up to Durham where I'll be with a bunch of friends watching it on a large screen TV. We're all Obama supporters and very hopeful about the future." There is much anticipation over Tuesday's inauguration, however, some won't be tuning in at all. Shawn Murphy of Wilmington said, “I really have no interest." Since the ceremony takes place mid-day, many people will be at work following all the action live on the web. If you are looking for coverage, cspan.org will have complete coverage of the inauguration from the swearing in at the Capitol to numerous inaugural balls. CNN and Facebook are teaming up to provide live coverage as well. Facebook members can RSVP for the event; they will be able to update their status and thoughts on the events as they unfold. Inaugural.senate.gov will have the entire ceremony streamed live on the net. The video will be closed-captioned, but a flash plug-in will be needed to view it. You can download it from Adobe for free. Because so many people will be on the internet and their cell phones tomorrow, there may be slight glitches in connectivity, but cell phone companies are saying there shouldn't be any major problems in our area.
