Conversations on Insiders and Outsiders

From Wired blog network: Anger Simmers, As Some Democratic State Bloggers' Access To the National Convention Floor Limited

This is a revealing article about who gets credentials from the DNC to blog their convention. The big Dem bloggers who have raised mucho $$$ but nevertheless didn't get the official nod complain that the DNC is supporting "people who are coming in with influence and access," rather than "independent bootstrapped bloggers"...

Call me crazy, but isn't that the whole point? -NH

Actually 'CCMcGoon' from Mark of the Beast got a credential. I wouldn't call her either a moneybags or a lot of influence and all...

We're all very happy over there for her!

Apparently from the article there were some smaller bloggers who are credentialled, but the complaint was that they didn't get the "official state blogger" status they were looking for.... I just thought that was a little ironic....

This will be an interesting convention for the blogosphere! We'll be looking for CCMcGoon...
