Netroots Nation panels

Hope to see some of you this year at Netroots Nation in Pittsburgh on August 13th-16th. I’m pretty stoked, since it’s usually a great time. I’ll be on two panels, both on Saturday the 15th. (At least so far, there’s often last minute additions.) Please come check them out if…

When you take two innocuous words and put them together: OMG THE CHILDREN!!!

This is the sort of pseudo-controversy that inspired Jesse to put together our panel last Netroots Nation on the way that the pearl-clutching over profanity is used to silence not just liberal opinion, but basic common sense. Marcy Wheeler said “blow job” on TV, and now I’m contractually obligated—as are…

Netroots Nation Reproductive Rights And Justice Panel

Besides the Ustream streaming of our panel “Breaking the Frame” on getting our frames on reproductive rights into the mainstream media and onto the internet, we also had Marc on hand to film and edit it into a highlight reel. He added, I think you’ll agree, some pizazz we’re not…

First Netroots Nation video up

Marc and I wandered around Netroots Nation asking people to offer their views on reproductive rights. Much to my delight, my expectation that your average attendee at Netroots Nation has an intelligent, learned opinion on these things proved correct. Thanks to everyone who agreed to be interviewed. RH Reality Check:…

More video from Netroots Nation

Webcam chat at Ustream This is the Meta panel that closed the Saturday portion of the conference. I’ll put up a highlight reel of the reproductive rights panel later; it’s much better quality.…

Travesty!

Sorry to come from an on-and-off Netroots Nation plus moving-inspired break to write about vaccinations again, but seriously, there is something screwy going on with the anti-vaccination crankery out there. At Netroots Nation, the most expensive booth—easily the most expensive booth—in the exhibit hall was an anti-vaccination booth. It was…

Netroots Nation doneness

So we’re not going to the blogger brunch today, but instead taking time for a real redneck pleasure of tubing with beer down one of our outlying rivers. One the whole, the conference was, as expected, amazing. I’m amused to see that the mere idea that liberals are getting together…

Come to my panels!

I figured I’d be up front about my desires for this Netroots Nation. I have one on reproductive rights called “Breaking the Frame” at 3PM, and if you see me wandering around with a cameraman, please come over and get your lovely mug on video talking about feminism and reproductive…

Al Gore Is Up In This Piece

Al Gore just stepped onstage at Netroots Nation, meaning that I am compelled by my contractual liberalism to post on the environment. The Wall Street Journal surprisingly opines against carbon-based environmental regulations yesterday. I am also surprisingly wearing shorts and sandals in Austin. And Al Gore is also surprisingly handsome…

Pathetic

Now this is some serious smackdown, blogger style. No it’s not. Ever since I heard that they’re having this right wing convention in town as a sort of shadow “fuck you for being better than us” convention, I’ve been telling everyone I meet at Netroots Nation. Not one has heard…
