What, you didn't think I would miss this inauguration did ya!
Posting will be non-existent today as I'm frantically packing for my trip to D.C. to witness the swearing in of Barack Obama.
...and yes, I'm going to blog ALL about it.
My first thing I have to do when I reach DC is get a handle on where the WiFI locations are and the best place to set up. There are MANY restrictions which wil lmake live blogging next to impossible unless you own a Blackberry. Since you can't carry any backpacks or camera bags, I'll basically be without a computer while at the ceremony BUT I will be shooting video, doing interviews, and taking photos (my coat has BIG pockets).
Although it's still in the works, there is a possibility that my blog posts will be simulcasted over at the News-Times site (and I say possibility since I'm using a MUCH older Windows laptop and I'm still testing producing videos on it).
After I get my bearings worked out, I have to attend the Netroots Nation "Yes We Can" party, which should be a blast since it's been a while since I've seen some of the national bloggers who were around during the Ned Lamont/Joe Lieberman primary. I'm sure I'll be shooting video there as well.
Then it's an early night's sleep as I'll probably have to hit the Capitol around 6-7 AM and deal with the cold. Now, since there is going to be an estimated 4 million people down there, it's going to be next to impossible to find the people from New Hope Baptist Church who will be there also BUT if I can, I'll make sure to interview them.
All in all, I'm VERY excited to participating in history in the making...but for now, I better get back to packing.
