DCCC and SpeakerPelosi.com's Blogger Bash

@ 03:41 AM | Filed Under: 2004 Democratic Convention (t) | Comments (3) | Cosmos

Speaker Pelosi.com and the DCCC hosted a gathering called Blogger Bash 2004 at Meze Estiatorio in Charlestown late Wednesday night. I met a bunch of interesting people, saw a few familiar faces and took a handful of photos throughout the evening. Joe Trippi made a very brief "appearance" about 1.5 hours into the event. Janeane Garofalo came in towards the end of the shindig. The highlight of the evening was meeting Granny D. She's a 94-year old political activist who is running for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire. A very inspiring woman. I talked to David Sifry of Technorati and he shared tales of his adventure covering the convention for CNN. His mantra this week is "Remember, it's just television. Don't take it too seriously."

All the credentialed bloggers received special "goody bags." I forgot to ask Michael Feldman what was in it before he left.

More photos from the evening are over in the photo album.

Howard Dean and a couple hundred of the old Massachusetts for Dean volunteers plus other supporters from his campaign days who were in town for the convention got together today at Hurricane O'Reilly's near the Fleet Center. It was the first time in a long time that I've seen all the people I used to volunteer with on his campaign. Gabe (pictured with me in the second photo) agreed that it was sort of like a high school reunion. Dean gave a good talk and spoke about the importance of people running for office, not just voting.

The rest of the gathering's photos are in my photo gallery at capricious.org

DNC Mania

@ 11:20 AM | Filed Under: 2004 Democratic Convention (t) | Comments (0) | Cosmos

I set up a new category called 2004 Democratic Convention for whatever I write this week regarding the Democratic National Convention that's in town. It's also the same week I start a new project at MIT. I'm hoping to move my schedule around so that I can see a screening of Fahrenheit 9/11 at the Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline on Tuesday at noon. Apparently Michael Moore will be there, too. I RSVP'd a few days ago but it looks like they aren't taking them anymore.
