  2. Actually – this was a fun little moment in our office – we broke out the extra office projector, hooked up the travel laptop (macbook, of course) and, when CNN.com was spotty – jumped to Hulu.

    It was a fun bonding moment – there was cheering and everything.

  4. I was stuck in English class so we all watched it on an ordinary Television. Pretty amazing to watch though, several people were crying they were so happy.

  6. I watched it from home. I took the day off because my baby sitter decided to go to DC for the Inauguration. I will hear all about her experience tomorrow morning.

  7. I’m still in school so I watched it in our school auditorium. It was interesting watching a new president.

  8. I’m an eighth grader, and our grade and the whole high school watched it in the auditorium at our school. They had the projector hooked up to the internet.

  9. Didn’t want to waste my time. Read the text later, to see how bad it was. I remain fearful of the rising populism.

  10. I watched it on TV in my hotel room in Manila, Philippines. Everyone, male or female, young or old, black or white, rich or poor, is able to identify with Mr Obama, the underdog who achieved such astounding success without a priviledged upbringing, unlike most politicians we know. I believe Mr Obama will inspire many young people to care more about their own country and believe that they can replace the old establishment with a better one.
