I thought this might be helpful to those who can’t make it to DC or who won’t be in front of a TV. 

Thanks to CNN.com for the story:

More than 2 million Americans lost their jobs last year, the stock market fell by almost 45 percent from its peak, and comparisons with the Great Depression are becoming disturbingly commonplace.

But that isn’t stopping Washington from throwing a $160 million party, the most lavish ever, for Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration on Tuesday.

Technology companies are joining the festivities by hosting a number of inaugural parties, and a collection of news and other Web sites are aiming to let anyone who can’t be in the nation’s capital–or who doesn’t want to brave probably-freezing temperatures–follow along online.
