A few more words on the Inauguration...

According to this interesting article from Ad Age, new media has made a dent in the traditional means many used to use to get information. President Obama's swearing in and inaugural address were watched across more platforms than any event in American history. It claims this year's winner (by no surprise) to be the web, with streaming video, social networks, and live-blogging throughout the day contributing to its popularity. 

I'd love to know how the rest of you watched the inauguration. Do you feel like these new platforms are affecting how you get your daily news or observe important live events?
