ETCon and Future of Kerry

So — with the successes in TN and VA – eyes are turning to DC and WI. Clark’s bow out has been extremely helpful – we are finding resources that were not available originally in the past few days.

Spent Sunday evening traveling to ETCon in San Diego — where I met up with more tech people and attempted to communicate with various people about the entry they could have into the Kerry Campaign. Highlights of the trip:

  • Met Trippi – he was extremely friendly – but on the stage, was quite adamant about what he thinks HD is going through and the benefits JK is having with the media’s turn of events. People communicated with me on what they thought of his positions and how things have gone wrong – but I am learning more and more, this is all about what is the “message”.
  • Met with the Tech4Dean Team – one of the leaders of the team open communications – and now we are chatting about what is next. Their vision for extending what can happen in the Democratic process is inspiring – the challenge is that the campaign is a train barrelling toward a goal – and limited time and bandwidth to implement all of the ideas. But the door is unlocked and we are happy to listen.
  • Met with Cam Barrett – interesting person and good egg. Did not know all of his credentials – but it was definitely worth the conversation with him and with Howard Rhiengold. Ed Cone and Phil Wolff joined us for dinner which made for an interesting conversation.

Myself – I keep feeling there are not enough hours in the day – which is exhausting to say the least. There are so many tasks to be addressed, and it never feels like there are enough hands to handle them. And then, with Drudge coming up with his sleaze – makes the coming weekend all the more exciting. We shall see what evolves.
