Netroots Nation is the most prestigious progressive conference in the world that centers around the world of internet politics and blogging. Alaska bloggers AK Muckraker and Shannyn Moore were the top vote getters nationwide in the first and second scholarship rounds held by the political action web site, Democracy for America. Consequently, they both won scholarships to the conference, that will be held, beginning the middle of next week, in Pittsburgh.
They will be the first Alaska voices at the conference, which is now in its fourth year. The agenda is so full of amazing events and presentations, I truly wish I could be there too.
AKM and Shannyn need your help, though. Even with the scholarships, the conference, lodging and travel are punishingly expensive. Both Shannyn and AKM put up fundraising posts wednesday afternoon.
Please go read them both, and DONATE!
I'm pitching in $30.00.
