I was all excited about the prospects for next year's event being in Providence (RI), given my family in that area, and so disappointed to hear that Union-Hotel disputes put it out of the running.

It's been a blast being at YearlyKos and Netroots Nation all these years (even if we didn't formally connect, you may have seen my grey top-hat from across the hall), but alas, the dates for next year conflict with the major national conference in the cohousing movement that I just can't miss.

I'll miss this journey to another progressive town, our closing speaker Senator Franken's territory. "A little bit less glitzy, and a little bit less hot. Great fishing..." Newfoundland? "Beautiful scenery".

So in the interest of supporting everyone else who can make it, or who couldn't make it yet but could for next year, perhaps with good planning or community support or scholarships, I thought I'd put up a basic diary from the #NN10 conference floor as a place for people to chime in on their thoughts/reactions to next year's venue, and to start the planning.

So what are your plans? I'll update this section with links to FaceBook and Upcoming and PlanCast events to RSVP and tell your friends.

Please list others you discover in the comments.

Of course, you can register now, before rates go up, at:

Remember, for conferences as for political campaigns, early money is like yeast: it helps you rise.

In case they haven't updated the main site yet, you can go directly to the registration site at:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
