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 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.
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.
