Time Event
Netroots Nation 2011, Day 2
I've been to hundreds of conventions of various sorts, and I must say, NN11 Day 2 (Friday 6/17/11) was one of the more extraordinary convention experiences ever. I went to a panel with a guy who actually understands how to talk to a camera. Completely at random, I was privileged to be privy to a conversation between an impassioned Second Amendment Rights Democrat and an equally impassioned Gun Control Democrat. I talked with a blogger from Germany telling stories from her Muslim point of view.

Icing on the cake, I was part of the impromptu crowd that bodily refused Andrew Breitbart entry into the Convention Hall, chasing him away as we chanted "COWARD COWARD COWARD".

Other nifty stuff happened too, but really. Hot damn. Hot diggity damn.

Added Day 2 Pictures. Here is my public Facebook gallery for Netroots Nation 2011. Will add to it over time.
