At least a million people descended on the nation's capital for the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Whether they were on the parade route or at the swearing-in ceremony, we got thousands of user reports.

As part of Inauguration Report, NPR's social media desk collaborated with CBS News, American University and volunteer programmers to come up with a way for people across the country to send multimedia dispatches of their inaugural experience.

You can view an ongoing feed of contributions or participate yourself.

Here's how to do it:

Twitter: Send a tweet with the phrase #inaug09 or #dctrip09. We'll automatically pull the location from your profile, but you can also set your location using the tags listed on the left.

IPhone and Google Phone: Download the iPhone app from the social networking section of the iPhone app store. For the Google phone, go to the Android Market and search for "IR09."

YouTube: Upload your video and make sure to tag it either inaug09 or dctrip09.

Flickr: Using your account, upload pictures and tag them inaug09 or dctrip09. Note that pound signs are not required for flickr and youtube content.
