Netroots Nation convention is in Austin, TX

The Netroots Nation 2008 convention is being held July 17 to 20 in Austin, TX.

Netroots Nation is a three-year old progressive political organization that uses blogs and other digital media to encourage public debate and political activism.

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Vermont ex-governor Howard Dean and congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-MD) are just a few of the national and international experts that will be speaking at the event.

The convention will be using LocaModa’s Wiffiti application to enable simultaneous Web, mobile and in-location conversation at the event. Wiffiti will be running on large projection screens in the convention center and all messages sent by attendees will be posted in real-time on the Netroots Nation Web site and any linked blogs.
