Netroots Nation '09 is over. Of course, we are still up until 5:30am (again) working on footage. Today we filmed Valerie Jarrett's conversation with Netroots Nation attendees, a keynote panel with Governor Jon Corzine, Anna Burger, Kevin Drumm, and Dean Baker, the closing keynote with Senator Jim Ferlo, Richard Tumka of the AFL-CIO, and Darcy Burner of the American Proggressive Caucus PolicyFoundation, and four more panels.
We'll start off with a real quick video on an issue that means a lot to me...
This is Chris Bowers on the spread of information over television vs the internet:
Next is another quick video, this one from the incredibly educational panel, "Cutting-Edge Evidence-Based Best Practices." In this video, Regina Schwartz talks about testing done on 2008 Presidential Primary GOTV calling in Pennsylvania:
Next up is another video from the best practices panel, this one about getting the youth out to vote:
Dave Karpf on hubs in social networking:
Dave Karpf: Who is winning YouTube?
Matthew Kerbel & Dave Karpf: Who is ahead in the Blogosphere?
Darcy Burner ended the night with this powerful speech:
In total, two of us filmed 16 panels, and had two cameras running for every major event throughout the weekend. We filmed all day, every day, and edited all night, every night. I'm still running on about 7 hours of sleep since Wednesday. Throughout the weekend we have been posting some highlights. Over the coming weeks we will release more extensive coverage, including the entirety of several panels.
