Helping You Blog (Unless You're Conservative)

September 2005
The progressive political organization ProgressNow.org is pushing a new product (say that three times fast) that they claim will help Democratic activists create and maintain websites and blogs. I don't fully understand the product without seeing it firsthand, but the idea is an interesting one in that it helps otherwise non-Internet savvy activists to get on the ol' information superhighway. This isn't a terribly novel idea from the blog standpoint, because plenty of companies already provide this, but by helping people plug into Democratic news and announcements more easily it could prove valuable. If you're interested, Progress Now is launching the product tonight. Here's the details: ProgressNow Headquarters, 5:30-7:00p.m. The Alliance Center 1536 Wynkoop Street (next to the Tattered Cover LoDo) Denver, Colorado
