Raven Brooks and the unConventional team pulled it off, and unConventional, the eBook about YearlyKos 2006, is now available in print.

unConventional pairs some outstanding photography of YearlyKos 2006 with personal essays from an entire array of Daily Kos users and other progressive figures. It turned out to be a great effort: those of you who purchased the eBook version know how wonderful it looks visually, and how remarkable some of the essays in the book are. (I wrote a number of pieces for the book, including an introduction and conclusion that I personally rank as two of the best things I've ever written.)

For some examples of the photography from the book, go here and here and here; for an excerpt from the introduction, go here; to buy it, go here.

This is being done as a fundraiser: proceeds from the sales of the book go to funding future YearlyKos events. You can have it shipped to you, or you can pick it up at YearlyKos '07 in Chicago. Whatever the case, be sure to have your copy in Chicago.

Seriously, buy this book. The pre-sale price is $35: it goes towards a good cause, it's expected to be a very limited run, and it will be an enduring reminder of the first YearlyKos Convention ever held.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
