Morning at TBA

I have been skipping back and forth between the Blogger panel, The Blogosphere: From Ideas to Action and the panel, It’s the Story: How Culture and New Media Can Move Progressive Ideas. This is just two of NINE panels all at the same time. I gave up and stayed at the blogger panel.
Some advice for conference planners, when you have one hour don’t put six people on a panel!
At the Progressive Ideas panel, I didn’t catch the speaker, but he showed two commercials, Clinton 1992 and Kerry 2004. The Clinton commercial was brilliant in its emotional approach. The Kerry commercial was scattered, inconsistent and ineffective.
At the blogger panel Matt Stoller gave a brilliant talk: Blogs are a democratic grassroots response to institutional betrayal.
Oliver Willis said anyone can join the left wing noise machine and work to kill conservatism dead.
