Here are just some ways to use social media today and tomorrow to share your Inauguration Day experiences:

*Participate in "The Moment" project by, which will use Microsoft's photosynth technology to create a massive, 3-D photo compilation of the precise moment Obama takes his oath of office. Email your photo of that moment to and then, later, head to to see the results.

*See Link Live's Inauguration tweetstream at

*Go to CNN's political ticker,, for the network's tweet coverage

* National Public Radio has set up a way for people going to the Inaugural to tweet their experiences and impressions by using the hashtag #dctrip09 to describe their travel to Washington and #inaug09 on Inauguration Day to weigh in on what it's like to be in the middle of it all. Follow for the latest tweets.

*Current and Twitter are teaming up again to broadcast as many tweets as possible over the inauguration ceremony and also will be streaming the event live.

*Check out, a joint project of NPR, CBS, American University, and others. The site compiles input from on-the-street citizen reporters through Flickr, YouTube, Twitter and other mobile applications.

*For a similarly condensed view of online inaugural-mania, do a Big Buzz search on Icerocket. This search site gives near real-time results from the Web, blogs, Twitter, video sites, news sites, and other Web 2.0 tools and mashes it all onto one page.
