As many of you already know, Netroots Nation is a conference of progressives bloggers and online activists. One weekend every year, some of the greatest minds from the netroots gather to discuss the most important issues of the day. Last year, we covered Netroots Nation and came out with some 75 videos, mostly from panels. This year, we are going to expand our coverage immensely. To find out more, simply join us today for this house party.
