Netroots Nation

It occurs to me that I haven't pimped my participation in Netroots Nation yet. I will be there, trying to attend as many concurrently-scheduled events as I can (where's Hermione's time-travel charm when you really need it?), and sitting on a panel along with some of my Texas blogging colleagues - that's Friday, 3 PM, Ballroom F, be there or be square. Oh, and I'll be at this party tomorrow night. I don't really know what else to expect, other than the certainty of getting lost inside the labyrinthine Austin Convention Center, but I'm looking forward to it, and I'll do my best to tell you about the stuff I see and hear. And for those of you who can't be in Austin physically for this event, you can be there virtually. So, one way or the other, I hope to see you there.

And for those of you who can't wait till tomorrow to get the festivities started, here's an appetizer from the Texas Politics Today radio show and its hosts, Deece Eckstein and David Kobierowski:

This week on TEXAS POLITICS TODAY, Markos Moulitsas ZĂșniga is our guest for a lively discussion of Internet activism and the 2008 elections. TEXAS POLITICS TODAY airs from 2:30 to 3:00 p.m. CDT every Wednesday on KOOP, Austin's community radio station. KOOP is located at 91.7 on the FM dial and also streams live over the Internet at www.koop.org.

KOOP, "the little station that could," is Austin's only community-owned radio station. It shares the FM 91.7 radio frequency with KVRX, the University of Texas student radio. It also streams live over the Web at www.koop.org. KOOP is on the air on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on weekends from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

I figure you know who Markos is, so I skipped the brief bio. Tune in later today for this unofficial kickoff to Netroots Nation, and I'll see you there tomorrow.
