This weekend, August 2-5, progressive activists, bloggers, and politicians from all over the country (and the world) will be gathering in Chicago for the Yearly Kos convention. Joining them will be all the major Democratic Presidential candidates, as well as Democratic party leaders, so you know its going to be quite the shindig. If like me you can't get to Chicago, you can still crack open that laptop and teleport in via Second Life.
The Kosians will be streaming keynotes and letting you attending breakout sessions virtually. The organizers have arranged for hospitality suites, an exhibit hall, dancing, and meet-and-greet areas, so pack those virtual calling cards. You can see the full convention schedule at http://www.yearlykosconvention.org/schedule.
