Fore those of you who aren’t in the know Netroots Nation is a political convention for American progressive political activists and bloggers. That group is broadly called the Netroots and has since grown to include progressive organizations and politicians who use new media technologies to communicate with their constituents. The convention re branded to Netroots Nation in 2007 in an effort to more accurately reflect the makeup of its audience and mission of implementing programs that teach and empower Netroots communities to affect change in the public sphere.

This year there will be over 70 panels (in addition to the parties, trainings, screenings and other fun events) that will be presented in Minneapolis June 16-19 and will feature Senator Russ Feingold as the opening keynote speaker.
