The Texas Bloggers Caucus was a success - we had about 70 people in attendance, including some media types and other more traditional activists. Joe Jaworski spoke about his campaign. Melissa Noriega (who probably wasn't expecting to be called on, but who did a very nice job anyway) talked about how she first came to discover and interact the blogosphere; she had a couple of good stories about having a DPS trooper knock on her door in the middle of the night shortly after the Ardmore exodus, and about using blogs to help track various plots and subplots in the Lege in 2005. Nate Wilcox said a few words about his book and his experiences with Richard Morrison and Tony Sanchez. I spoke about the TexBlog PAC. Good conversation, lots of energy from the crowd - all in all, a fine way to start.
And finally, I got quoted by Karen Brooks, who outed an infiltrator in our midst. Right place, right time.Posted by Charles Kuffner on July 17, 2008 to Blog stuff
