State Democratic Convention: Netroots Panels

A group of us are helping the Florida Democratic Party organize a series of Netroots panels at the state convention.

By Netroots, we're referring to bloggers and other online activist who use the Internet for such things as organizing, fundraising, and getting out the Democratic messsage.

We will be having three panels:

Netroots 101 - this would cover basics like what is a blog, what to write about, building your readership and using stuff like MySpace, Facebook and beyond.

Netroots Tools - discuss the more advanced online tools and digital media one can use in blogging, campaigning, or party building.

Working with the Netroots - discuss how the party and the netroots can work together from the DEC's perspective, a candidate's perspective, state party perspective and the national party perspective.

I'd appreciate it if you would take this survey and give us some feedback on the kind of things you'd like to learn more about at these panels. There are only 5 questions and you don't have to answer them all - just the ones where you have an opinion. The survey ends on September 7th at Noon.
