New President & New Technology

obamatagcloudNow I’m not going to get into the differences between Bush and Obama. There are enough folks writing about that. However, what I was excited to see was how the Web 2.0 world embraced this event. I was kept updated through Twitter after I elected to follow Obama. I got updates on where to go if I was attending the inaugural event. It sent me the url for the text of the speech and updated me on what Ball the Obama’s where attending.  I was also happy to see that he  is following me 😉  on Twitter. The tag clouds where quick to follow the publishing of the speech. Take a look at the portrait of past 5 presidents speeches as a tag cloud http://tinyurl.com/8wcz6c this is realllly cool!  Delve Networks posted video of the speech which is searchable using their search tool http://tinyurl.com/9893j8 search for words that he spoke and it shows you where on the video time line. Today I traveled from Atlanta to San Francisco to present at the TRLD conference. I was delighted to see all the different newspaper covers in the airport. Later I was made aware of this resource http://tinyurl.com/8jx8un just click on the cover to see the cover page. In the age of Google Earth how could we not have a satellite image of the event http://tinyurl.com/7j4f83 this also has many other photos from the event. I’m a CNN hound so lastly I will share the CNN and Microsoft’s partnership using Photosynth to document the moment. http://tinyurl.com/99v4h2
