New Year's Eve From Around the World. Beautiful 360o panoramas from the first few minutes of 2006 in New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo, Minneapolis, Ljubljana and elsewhere. [Note: Some of the panoramas also have sound]

It's interesting how very unstoked some people look in those crowd shots. In NY, the woman holding the light. In Sydney, the woman in the green dress.

It's very easy to look non-stoked in Times Square.

Look at the Minneapolis one. There's 25-20 people on the bridge at most --- And it was even warm last night.

Especially if you're a New Yorker. But that would never happen, because real New Yorkers know better than to go to Times Square. Just like real Londoners wouldn't be seen dead in Piccadilly Circus.

I envy those australians: standing outside in the dead of night is much more fun in summer.

I was directly underneath the Minneapolis fireworks, in St. Anthony Main, watching a midnight showing of Once Upon a Girl.
