In partnership with Microsoft, CNN has published “The Moment” a Photosynth experience that allows users to upload photos during the inauguration of President Barack Obama which will then automagically be stitched into the potentially largest and “most detailed experience of a single moment ever.” Don’t know about Photosynth, check out the web site. “The Moment” will use a combination of crowd sourcing and professional photographers to freeze those amazing 20 seconds when President Elect Obama will take the Oath of Office and become President Obama.
How do you contribute photos to have a hand in creating “The Moment?”
If you want to use Photosynth to create a synth of anything – real estate listings, hotel amenities, your dog, whatever – you can do so on the Photosynth web site. If you want to mash Photosynth with Virtual Earth, read my blog entry. For additional information about The Moment, check out the press release or the Photosynth blog.
Don’t be lame. Be a part of history.
