Last August, every political blogger in the state that didn’t have a damned good excuse was at the Sorensen Institute Summit on Blogging and Democracy in the Commonwealth. We spent an entire day arguing, speechifying, theorizing, collaborating, and, yes, blogging. Everybody got to know each other, everybody had a great time, and everybody agreed we should do it again.
Well, we’re doing it again. And if you’re not available from Friday, June 16 – Saturday, June 17, you’d best start practicing that excuse.
Announcing The 2006 Summit on Blogging and Democracy in the Commonwealth. (Well, not really “announcing.” Let’s go with “leaking.” I’m not even done with the website. The Sorensen Institute hasn’t even sent out the press releases.) Two days of workshops, speakers, and an evening of debauchery. Bloggers, journalists, members of the General Assembly, blog commenters, blog readers, and hangers-on, all under one roof for two days. Since it’s twice as long as last year’s, it stands to reason that it will be twice as good.
Registration is an freaking bargain at $50, thanks to Verizon’s sponsorship.
All the press releases and stuff will go out next week. That’s when we’ll announce the roster of speakers, the workshop leaders, etc. Beat the rush and register today.
