There is a Second Life angle to this: two of my friends and I hosted a party to celebrate the inauguration in SL this past Sunday. It was at lynsey Fleury's Woodstock sim, with a live performance by Angelndskyz Galicia. It was like a real party: I introduced friends who didn't know each other to each other, and, because it was SL, was able to keep dancing while I shot some video! Didn't have the space navigator hooked up, so the video is choppy, and it is just one take, no cuts, but it gives an idea of what it was like. You can see the awesome ice ramp Maya Paris created, with the congratulatory message to Obama that we all felt so strongly.
and now Joseph Biden is officially VP.
12:04 pm: Obama comes to the podium for the oath!
