As you know, I am a huge geek... and proud of it let me tell you!!
Today is definitely a day in history for geeks. For the first time in history, CNN is providing live coverage of the Presidential Inauguration with Facebook.
You can watch this live by going to http://cnn.com/live
What is so interesting about this?
Today is the first day in history that you can actually share this historic event with your friends and with people around the entire world.
I am working from home today.... alone.
Yet sitting here watching this coverage on Facebook and watching the comments and updates coming in from Facebook, I feel like I am part of a huge community of people.
This is the power of social networking and social media!!
Never before have we seen anything like this and let me tell you from a geek standpoint... it is truly fascinating!
CNN acknowledges the Facebook users, comments to them, and even tracks different conversations using analytics just like we do.
If we can watch history being made like this today, how will our children watch tomorrow?
Here are just a few of the comments coming from Facebook:
Marshall Sponder thinks what Facebook has done with inauguration coverage is the model of future participation in most public events via Social Networks.
Syed-Ali Jafri is commenting on Facebook while watching the inauguration on CCN.com; this is our equivalent of huddling around the radio for Roosevelt's fireside chats.
Bill Wise is sitting at desk, working, watching CNN Live with facebook (amazing partnership).
Antoine Simpson This was not possible when I was growing up.
Heidi Heid is impressed that CNN's servers can handle the load. Well done CNN.
Mike Ober is wondering if CNN.com will hold-up through these events... pretty cool CNN Live with Facebook though.
Andy Rodriguez CNN is doing a fantastic job at coverinmg this, Kudos to the CNN team.
Chris Winfield super impressed by http://cnn.com/live & how they integrated with facebook. CNN continues to impress me with 'getting it'.
