Ben Zolno on The UpTake at Netroots Nation 2011 #nn11

Netroots Nation is the home of the online progressive movement. It’s an intense four days of learning, networking, and being wooed by every union and politician around. I’m already on their side, so for me it’s kind of like a rep from Ben and Jerry’s begging me to try their new ice cream. Except the rep could be trying to sell me their new All-Natural Agave Swirl, only later to learn it’d be better described as Nuclear High Fructose Corn Syrup Sludge. They both taste good, so it’s best to look closely, or not look at all.

This is I trying to make sense after being on my feet for 10 hours on 3 hours of sleep, so you may notice me slipping in and out of consciousness. Excellent interview technique by Mike McIntee, who had been interviewing folks all day; I know how taxing that can be, so I am impressed by his focus and thought-provoking line of questioning.
