I just heard that I have a press pass to the BIG TENT in Denver during the Democratic Convention next month. Charging the camera for youtube videos and planning on how to get my gear into one bag for the airplane. (Carry 0n) I don’t want it twirling around on the turnstile in baggage claim without me. Scary…
It just so happens it is also my sister’s birthday and guess what? She lives near Denver!!!! Just try to find an empty hotel room that week. Dust off the couch sis ’cause I’m a ‘comin’! STAY TUNED FOR MORE DETAILS…VAL
Here’s a description of my home away from home AKA: THE BIG TENT:
The Big Tent will be the place to be for new media journalists, bloggers, reporters, and non-profit leaders covering the Democratic National Convention in Denver this summer.
We’re creating a 9,000 square foot, two-story structure that will house the work space for journalists, bloggers and new media, a Digg Stage with prominent national leaders, as well as a Google Retreat with a YouTube kiosk where you can make your own YouTube videos. The Big Tent will be open throughout the Democratic National Convention, Aug. 25- 28.
In the New Media Lounge, your pass will be a ticket to to enjoy all the benefits of the blogger / new media lounge, including free WiFi, work space, television-coverage, as well as free food and drinks. And you get to hang out with some of the top bloggers, new media journalists, and non-profit leaders in the country.
