It’s that time again. Time for Netroots Nation. From an email I received:
Since President Obama’s historic inauguration in January, we’ve seen some positive change take place—and we’ve started pushing major reform on issues like health care and climate change.
In the next 12 months, we’ll be working together more than ever to push progressive policy into legislation. And there’s no better place to strategize our priorities and plan how to make them a reality than at Netroots Nation, the annual Netroots convention that will be held in Pittsburgh this August.
At Netroots Nation, thousands of progressive activists meet to discuss important topics from the environment to the economy and strategize about how to organize and affect change.

From healthcare to energy and security, there’s no better place to strategize our priorities and plan how to make them a reality than at Netroots Nation. Will you join us in Pittsburgh August 13–16?
For a limited time, registration is just $275. After those registrations are gone, the price will be $325. With my schedule, I won’t be able to attend, but if I could, I’d be there. Sounds like a good time!
