Edit 20 Jan: Just bumping this up as a reminder. Are there any more regular/known-to-me Hoydenizens willing to be added as panellists? The upside, for you, is that your comments will be put through to the liveblogchat window immediately. The downside is that I’ll ask you to help with approving guest comments through. If you can only be there for part of it, that’s fine too. Drop me a comment (using the email address you’re willing to have added to CiL), or email me at gmail, username lauredhelhoyden.
Also, Does anyone know of anywhere on the web that will be live-streaming the inauguration? I’ll have family members sleeping where both of the TVs are, and no TV headphones, so I won’t be able to watch it that way. Unless I can put one of them out in a tent or something. Hmm. Food for thought.
We’ve decided to give CoverItLive another go for Obama’s inauguration!
Unfortunately, the timing isn’t great for Aussies. I’ve set the chat session to start at half past midnight Perth time (GMT+9)- Tuesday night (Wednesday morning, really). The Inauguration itself will be at around 2 am.
This translates to Eastern Australian time (GMT +11) – Wednesday morning, from half past two.
If you’re elsewhere… there should be enough info here to figure it out! If I’ve got this timing wrong, someone please let me know and I’ll adjust it.
Given the unsociable hour, I may well not be around for a fair bit of the event, and I don’t think tigtog can be around for any of it. If you’re a regular who would like to be a panelist, drop me a line, that gmail place, username lauredhelhoyden. I’ll need your email address. I have volunteered several of you with panellist privileges – let me know if you’d prefer not to.
Fuckpoliteness, Quixotess, Bene, ladoctorita – you were all quite involved in the last liveblogchat. Are you interested? Anyone else want to pitch in as a “panelist”? There will be the ability for “guests” to chat, also – so long as message numbers don’t get completely unmanageable, please feel free to use it as more of a chat session than a liveblogging session.
