    he's one of us for real. i think he was at nn10, and i know he was at nn11. not sure about the other years.

    netroots nation is the best meet up ever!

        it can be a little pricey, but if you can share a room w/ a few people and maybe carpool, it's not too bad. there's lots of free food- you might not have to pay to eat at all if you go to the events where organizations sponsor the eats.

        they're held in different parts of the country- nn12 was just a few hours away from my house. this year i have way farther to travel.

        the conference fee is a deal i think, especially if you get the early bird rate.

        also, they have scholarships- maybe you could try for one?

          travelling is kind of a project for me, even though I love to see new things. And I would love to shake Grayson's and Warren's hands and tell them what their work means, even though I fear I would be like those people who see Keith Olbermann out places and cry all over him.

      He reminds me a little of MB. MB goes about his business not giving a damn that he's the MB we all know, love and respect. MB goes about his business taking care of business, and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty in the process. Rep. Grayson looks you in the eye when he talks to you - we exchanged "how are ya's" briefly - isn't looking beyond you for the next handshake, and actually listens to what you have to say. What more can one ask?

      •  love him!! (1+ / 0-)

        i saw him around, but met him at a night time comedy event. he was there to enjoy the show. i waited to say hi to him. another kossack was lobbying him on a subject, and gave grayson some printouts. the conversation lasted a while. you're right- he was very much listening intently to the guy.

        when i was able to talk to grayson i said i just want to tell you i love you. he smiled and laughed and said i love you too!
