Photosynth Obama's inauguration (update)

Via ReadWriteWeb: CNN.com’s minisite “The Moment” will be Synthing the inauguration on January 20, combining crowd snapshots of this historic Tuesday into an immersive experience:

“We’ll take your photos from every angle, combine them with CNN’s professional shots, and produce what we hope will be an amazing experience that will be shown live on CNN. And you thought the Jessica Yellin hologram was cool! The synth will also be available for everyone to see on CNN.com.”

Meanwhile, MSNBC used Photosynth to capture Sunday’s Lincoln Memorial concert on the Mall:
