well, actually I can't answer that question for you. But maybe I can entice you.
If you go to yearlykos, you might get to meet all kinds of interesting people. Some of them will be blog celebrities. Some of them will be real celebrities. You might be able to have your picture taken with them. They might be able to have their pictures taken with you.
Come along and see some examples of what I experienced in Las Vegas last year.
WARNING - VERY PICTURE INTENSIVE
How about Joe Trippi?
Or seeing a group that contains OrangeClouds115 on the left?
You might see nyceve talking to Maryscott O'Connor:
How about getting your picture taken with General Wesley Clark?

You could get your picture taken with Bill Richardson:

You could see emptywheel posing with cs kendrick:
later she roped me into going to dinner at the Bellagio, where I was in the presence of blogosphere luminaries - among those in attendance were Glenn Greenwald, Jane Hamsher and Murray Waas -
and we even kept our inner bloggers in line, as you can see in this picture with Pastor Dan:
yearlykos is about the people, the chance to get to know those whom you've read, and others who have read you (if you post). It was a chance to make new friendships, learn one heck of a lot, and deepen ties with some we already new.
I obviously had fun, but these pictures do not come close to showing how much. They barely scratch the surface of my memories. That is why I am going again. I do hope I see y'all there?
