Inauguration Report is Live!

In case you haven't seen my tweets about it yet, Inauguration Report is now live. We've managed to create a variety of ways for you to share your inauguration experiences, from text messaging to an iPhone app. CBS News and American University are also helping us promote the project.

We've created a couple of Web pages you'll want to check out. First, visit NPR's Inauguration Report hub for details on how to participate; there's also a widget there, displaying reports as they come in to us. You can also check out, which displays a giant map of all the reports that have been geotagged.

If you're coming to the inauguration or will be involved in events in your community, feel free to start posting dispatches now. We've already gotten hundreds of submissions via Twitter, and other content is coming in as well. We really want to hear from you if you're making your way to DC, whether it's the joy of the road trip or the frustration of traffic gridlock. And on January 20th, we hope to get a ton of submissions, assuming the networks don't come crashing down from the strain.

Special thanks to Dave Troy, Andrew Turner. Nathan Freitas and Sze Wong for their spectacular coding work; David Johnson and Dan Farber for joining us in the editorial collaboration; and Nancy Scola and Allison Fine for taking the lead in pulling together the Vote Report team, which directly lead to the creation of this project. We couldn't have done it without you.
