I'm back home in San Diego after another successful Netroots Nation. I had a great time, it's always nice to meet people face to face even if it's only for a few days each year.

I flew in to Providence on Tuesday so I could help out on Wednesday and do a little exploring downtown. I wanted to share some of the pictures I took while in Providence with my iPhone, some are from the conference others while out walking around, going to lunch etc...

Netroots Nation 2012

This was the view from my hotel room at the Westin. I took this Wednesday morning. The shot is made from three High Dynamic Range (HDR) pictures stitched together.

I'm a craft beer enthusiast so one of my first stops was to have lunch on Wednesday at one of the brewpubs 2 blocks from the convention center. Trinity Brewhouse, good beer and decent food. If I lived in Providence this would be a regular stop for me I'm sure.

Here is a 180 degree 3D panorama I created using Photosynth while at the C & J Dinner. You can check it out by following this link.

I took this shot of the Biltmore and the next two shots on my walk back to the hotel after the C&J dinner. The clearing storm and evening light combined for some great picture taking opportunities.

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.
