A WORTHWHILE CONFERENCE ON 'NET POLITICS

On May 16 (a Monday) the PersonalDemocracy.com website is hosting its annual conference in the Big Apple. They're billing it as " the premier event for political leaders, activists and operatives; technologists, journalists and futurists and anyone else looking for strategic understanding and market opportunities in the evolving world of technology-driven politics."

The speakers include a quite diverse collection of names: Service Employees International Union president Andy Stern,  Markos "Daily Kos" Moulitsas,  Joshua "Talking Points" Marshall, Craig "Craigslist" Newmark, Republican National Committee e-director Mike Turk, Ex-MoveOn organizing director and ex-Kerry campaign e-whiz Zack Exley, 'net Deaniac Zephyr Teachout, "We Are the Media author Dan Gilmore, and many more. Of course, this is a rather pricey affair -- $295 bucks a ticket, which takes a little bit of the "democracy" out of the assembly and makes it another gabfest for the monied elite and entrepreneurs looking to make a buck out of 'net politics -- but the agenda looks worthwhile, and one might actually want to hear what some of these speakers have to say, as well as sound off yourself. So, readers of DIRELAND can get a $70 discount by using the
following registration code: direland225. You can register by clicking here. (If you are from a non-profit or are a student with ID, you should inquire with the conference organizers at info@personaldemocracy.com about other discounts.)
