DNC 2.0

Scherclemonsdnc

The clear feeling here in Denver is that the (technology rich) progressive movement has its own convention-within-a-convention going on. 

This shot more than captures the rise, and resourcefulness, of the new netroots political media.  In the shot, Bill Scher of Campaign For America’s Future (well known for his ability to blog standing up) interviews public policy expert Steve Clemons of The Washington Note in the Google lounge of The Big Tent (in other words, blogger central).  Using his MacBook as a video camera, you can see Al Shaw, our producer capturing the interview with his iPhone uploading directly to the web via Qik, with yours truly on screen just off Steve’s left shoulder.  Bill’s interview should be on-line any minute.
