Thank You, Democracy For America


by paradox

I got an extremely nice hand-written card from a Democracy for America Netroots Nation scholarship winner today in the mail, the nicest thing anybody has ever done for me when I’ve helped out a bit. It was fitting it was such a classy act, all of those people I met were first-rate, fascinating humans, and it was honor to have them attend in Austin. Thank you, Democracy For America

I haven't written much about my time at Netroots Nation because the work is really only interesting for those who attended, and precisely like a lot of authors I’ll attach an absurd gushy sentimentality to the work that likely isn’t warranted. I was totally thrilled to meet so many of my heroes and friends in the blogging world and determined to have a good time, which I did. As I wrote before a cloud of angst was all over the place and I wasn’t going to let it get me down.

I was able to serve Netroots for the Troops one afternoon, a great thing, and I have some future work to do for Cliff Schecter, which I’m looking forward to, but looking back on the whole thing I wish I could have been a little more serious—Jesus, all the cards I have are an unorganized mess, without notes I only can remember half of these people, I’m terrible with names. Oh well, I totally plan to attend the Pittsburgh convention and I’ll get some more work done then; it felt like a unique chance to finally have some fun in life, and I fulfilled my mission.
