For anyone that is not at the Barack Obama presidential inauguration or at home watching it, and you would like to watch it, you can do so here. I have embedded the UStream.TV live video stream below. The nice thing is that there is also audio, not just silent video.
07:48 AM Currently it is showing the presidential limo, staff members, secret service and other security waiting for president elect to come out and be take to the inauguration site. I can also hear in the distant background the inauguration orchestra practicing.
Update 08:21 AM That’s a lot of people. I am sure there is two or three times that somewhere around also attending the inauguration ceremony.
Update 08:28 AM I was just thinking, because of its significance and because of the people involved, this is probably one of the most documented events in our history! Publicly and privately.
Update 08:39 AM Here is another screenshot of the amount of people attending the presidential inauguration.
Update 09:01 AM The AP reporter just said that there are between 1 and 2 million people on site. Sorry I missed his name, but if you know his name feel free to leave his name in the comments below, I will update here. He also said that people are also as far as 1 mile away from the ceremony site. I don’t know what they can see from that far, but binoculars or telepresence will do, I suppose. The white rectangles you see on the right of the first and second images above are telepresence movie screens mounted on 18 wheelers.
Update 09:12 AM Bush and Obama together at last for the traditional transitional coffee.
