A Visit to Ted's Anchorage Campaign Office
That was on Tuesday afternoon. Yesterday this YouTube was featured as the header of my article at the national progressive blog, firedoglake, where we concluded the two-week long poetry contest there, called TedFest! Earlier in the afternoon, I was the guest, along with KSKA/KAKM's John Proffitt, on a KSKA Community Forum program about blogging.
John is very savvy on web-based content. As we sat there across from Nellie Moore, answering her questions for listeners, John was blogging away, both at the base site for the program, and at his own blog, Gravity Medium. I had my laptop on too, and based on a comment from caller Bill Hess, I updated Progressive Alaska, to give Bill the photo credit for his amazing photograph taken of Latseen and Diane Benson, taken almost twenty years ago.
What a pleasure, working within the course of two days, with Nellie Moore, John Proffitt, Dennis Zaki, and the exceptional people at firedoglake. And making the guerrilla YouTube at the top here was a lot of fun. Both Dennis and I are getting a lot of positive feedback. Looks like Don and Sean get our treatment next, folks.
And - I'm hoping to introduce one of Alaska's finest new progressive voices to our readers here soon......
