Netroots Nation starts today

Netroots Nation is a convention in the USA for online Democratic and democratic politcal activists.  It's been going on for a few years and started as YearlyKos, a convention for Dailykos.com

It looks like they are doing live online broadcasts of all their sessions.  I'm not sure if it's just today, or all days.  It looks like there is a lot of interesting content.

All times given are in Eastern, as it takes place in Rhode Island.  So I guess the day is pretty much over, but maybe this will tempt people into tuning in for whatever they have tomorrow.
