The online inauguration

Posted by bcopple on January 21, 2009

Unbelievable numbers from today’s CNN/Facebook extravaganza. Have to say: loved it. Video stream never broke – I had an unbroken stream, which seems like something a pharmaceutical ad might promise – and the status updates alongside helped reduce my toggling. Still toggled my ass off, of course – Twitter, mail, CNN, repeat. Even the full-screen view looked great.

So, the only serious inauguration fuck-up belongs to Chief Justice John Roberts. The highest-ranking jurist in the whole goddamn Republic was unable to recite a few (critically important) lines. One of those days when it’s good to have a lifetime appointment.
