Liveblogging Barack Obama's Inauguration speech

The National Post in Canada are planning to. I'm sure others will be too.

Like Time magazine.

Maybe the Guardian will liveblog it. After all, Oliver Burkeman blogged George Bush's 'farewell', so why not Obama's 'hello'?

On Saturday Obama travelled in the footsteps of Abraham Lincoln. And I wonder what the former president would have made of liveblogging? I reckon his great debates with senator Stephen Douglas would have made a cracking set of live blogs. Less confident he'd have been so happy with live updates of the progress of the American Civil War though.
