Bringing Netroots home to Alaska
by Mel Green
Our fatigued reporter’s last report from Minneapolis, because by the time you read this, she’ll be on a plane on the way back to Anchorage. But she’ll have more to say about Netroots Nation and LGBT Netroots Connect and some of the stuff she learned there to benefit — at least so we hope — the LGBT community(s) of Alaska — once she’s able to decompress & unpack it.
With this post I will attempt the Guiness Book of World Records for shortest-ever post written by me. It’s got to be short, because it’s past midnight Minneapolis time, & I still haven’t been to bed. I have, however, packed. Sleep will take place in the Hilton tonight & my Minneapolis to Seattle flight tomorrow, divided by checkout, breakfast with a local friend, and the shuttle trip to the airport.
My Daily Tweets post for today in particular will be much more informative than this post.
I will say this about the third and last day of Netroots Nation 11: (1) I was too tired to function well at the afternoon sessions, but I still made some great contacts that I think will serve us back in Alaska. (2) the Right Online conference (RO11) — a sort of Netroots Nation imitation that the rightists have been holding here at the Hilton Minneapolis — made some noise during the day, but by the time I got back to the hotel after NN11 ended, scarcely a green lanyard was to be found: just orange lanyards — Netroots’ color — all over the place. Good. (3) I’m really glad to be going home.
And that’s enough. More info, photos, etc. when I’m back home.
See you on the other side, & see you at Pride.Tags: Netroots Nation
