    I wouldn't have believed this w/o seeing it.... Cirkut is mainstream.

    There's an ad upfront, but then a Cirkut photo being taken at the
    Democratic convention.

    "Convention class photo 1:08.... How many Democrats can you fit into
    the official convention photo? CNN's Jeanne Moos says it's easier done
    than said."

    They're using a Cirkut.... they have what sounds like an automated
    tape telling people what to do via loudspeakers.

    LOL.... this is really funny / time appropriate. I dunno how many
    people - one headline said 15,000 people, another said 20,000. I
    guess once you go beyond 10k, a few thousand more here or there
    doesn't matter much.

    I'm not sure this would be so hard - everybody is already in position.

    Seems like they would have waited until tonight at the stadium with 80,000 in attendance.

    That was neat, seeing the Cirkut in action. Hope they took one at the stadium tonight.
