follow the torch relay along with twitter

scott beale from the tremendous local blog laughingsquid is using twitter as are a large number of people to update what they are seeing down on the torch relay route.

i was planning on going down, but i have been kind ill the last three days and also a little stressed out so i am skipping it in real life. i am going to follow it online and through the tv since it will be on all the channels here.

1 p.m. pst is the official start time. chaos soon thereafter.

*update*

as i was posting this there was a good link on twitter, justin.tv is livecasting the protest

follow along there as well if you wish

1:46 p.m.

the torch has arrived and it now appears that there is not much of a torch relay, but more of a torch drive around the city. there have numerous feints and decoys by the organizers to keep protesters at bay. the torch runner that took the torch into a building was surrounded by the security forces in blue(who are supposed to be elite chinese military).
