I look forward to meeting many of my fellow dKos members (I've never cared for the term "Kossacks" myself) this evening as well as throughout the weekend.
My wife, Mrs. Brainwrap, will be at dinner tonight but isn't attending the convention itself.
For the record, I've only attended one NN before...the 2nd Yearly Kos convention in Chicago (before they changed the name to Netroots Nation). I'm guessing that a lot has changed since then, so I don't even know what to expect.
In any event, I just wanted to thank the dKos community again for your amazing outpouring of support at the fundraiser that Markos and the dKos crew put together for me a few months back.
It wasn't just the time spent on the ACA Signups project, but also the 2 months that I was effectively useless afterwards with a nasty shingles outbreak (caused, for the most part, by becoming run down due to tracking the enrollment insanity). I really can't tell you how much that fundraiser saved my bacon this year (and I'm Jewish, so I shouldn't even be eating bacon...)
Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone again, and let you know how much it meant to me.
As for NN14 itself, I'm not hosting a panel or anything like that; I'm just a standard attendee, so I'll be bopping around from one event to another in a likely random fashion.
Hope to see many of you there!!
