RFC broadcast of inauguration


The screen at the Robinson Film Center is about as large as my home ET center. A little less seating, too.

The crowd is pretty quiet so far. People's eyes are fixed on the screen. Interesting.

Well, what else is there to do when you are watching a trainwreck unfold before your eyes?

Such great optimism...

Right before the swearing in was beginning, a flood of people filled the theater. There were lots of local media outlets pointing their cameras both at the screen and at the crowd, but what was more interesting was the ways in which people were documenting the event by themselves. Lots of cameras, cellphone cameras, video cameras, etc., trying to capture a moment in time, ostensibly to show friends and future families where they were and why. It kind of shows me how newer technologies have further enabled people to become citizen journalists/historians/record-takers/etc. during big moments.

It is called realism.

All this for a politician. Too much. Too, too much.
