Today looks to be alot better. I woke up this morning to find in my email inbox a wonderful email from one of the blogger media people, letting us know that we can request spots on "podium roundtalble interviews." As speakers at the convention step off the stage and into the sea of media and delegates they will have a blogger/press roundtable waiting for them where we can ask a question or two. You can only request three a day from the list of speakers. I'm sure most bloggers would go after a spot speaking to the bigger name folks from today's schedule. For me, I'm just trying to find people who can speak to issue relevant to Chamorros and Pacific Islanders. My "chosen" three from today's illustrious list of speakers are:
Eleanor Holmes Norton
Another bit of good news is that today I'll be attending a blogger Tailgate 08 party hosted by Howard Dean and the Convention outside of the Pepsi Center. I haven't run into many bloggers lately since I've been here, I think they've all been hanging out at the Pepsi Center where the internet is better.
I'm hoping to run into Aaron Silverstein from the local Colorado blog Squarestate.net, who is the blogger who began the blog Guam Loves Jason Rosenberg last year, which led me to apply as the blogger from Guam. I painted him something while I've been here and want to give it to him as a gift.
