If you didn't make it down to Grant Park on Tuesday and would like to get a view other than that of the major networks, there are some interesting alternative views of the event. The real star of the alternative coverage is WBEZ, which asked its flickr pool users to fill specific assignments. The station posted their work in audio/video slideshows and other collections that draw from the pool. Other interesting coverage includes that of Chicago Magazine, Chicagoist, and, of course, the GB flickr pool.
