When I was on my nationwide search for a Berkeley alternative, Boulder was an oft-stated option. And I learned why yesterday. Boulderites have themselves a nice little corner of the world. And I've been a fan of Denver since I first visited last year while doing research for the book.
I spent the morning in Denver hanging with the Progress Now crew, doing some radio, a podcast, and meeting with Colorado bloggers like the Soapblox Colorado guys. I had lunch with Talkleft's Jeralyn and her law-school-attending son (he apparently hates it as much as I did), and after a short nap, headed off to Boulder.
I did a book signing at the Boulder Bookstore (which has signed copies of the book if you couldn't make it last night) then hung out with the local Drinking Liberally crew. I chatted for a while with Jay Fawcett, who is getting a great deal of local buzz in his open seat congressional race despite running in the heavily Republican Colorado Springs district. And got to hang out with the very cool Em Dash.
