Inauguration of President Obama on Google Maps

Here's something cool: a satellite view of Obama's inauguration via Google Maps. I'll embed it here but if it doesn't work, follow the link.

There's nothing Google can't do.

The National Park Service has stopped making official counts of crowds at these kinds of functions - I've heard anywhere from 800,000 to 2 million people were there. Impressive, no matter which estimate you believe. (And the largest viewing audience since Reagan's first inaugural. The Gipper still wins that one!)
