along with about 150 other people for a day of non-partisan discussion of how politics may be changing, particularly because of the new global connectedness. The conference organizer is Andrew Rasiej, who I almost met when he was with the Dean campaign.
Bloggers’ Corner? … Notable bits so far:
- Bob Kerrey on blogging: “It’s not something you can control. Blogging is like gravity: It is. The question is what are you going to do with it?”
- Joe Trippi was asked, “Will the Republicans figure this out?” and replied, “Absolutely. They already have.”
- Ralph Reed’s idea of grassroots: “MoveOn.org tried doing bottom up and ended up with an ad on their site. As you empower people, you also have to maintain message discipline.”
