Ok, so even if you don't feel like it's that awesome (which, it in fact is), you still have to admit that an event that brings together "the largest gathering of people in the history of the world" is pretty impressive.
Hugest crowd ever. Lilterally. CNN had this pretty nifty streaming program that was linked to Facebook. Nothing like watching the inauguration with a friend from 5th grade, a college professor, and a couple of old co-workers. I love technology.
