A little over a week ago, I received a full briefing on the progress of the Yearly Kos
convention planning, leading up to the big even in the summer of 2006. While sympathetic to the goals of the project, I watched from afar, afraid to jumpt the gun lest initial enthusiasm fade. Planning a convention is serious business, requiring serious time commitments.
But what I was shown was impressive, to say the least. So I'm aboard. This thing is going to rock, and I will do my part to help make it a success.

Perhaps I should wax poetic on the power of open source convention planning, the way technology allows passionate people to pool their skills, time and resources in pursuit of a grand vision. But I'll save that for another day.
It's still early, and there's much work to be done. But I have complete faith in the Yearly Kos team, and will do my part to generate the sponsorships, speakers and publicity that will make this the marquee progressive event in 2006.
