EVENT, Markos "Daily Kos" Moulitas visits Chicago

I was inspired to blog by Markos Moulitsas, creator of Daily Kos.

If you are mostly familiar with blogging through Proviso Probe, you'll notice some differences at Daily Kos. You need to create an account to post there. The website is explicitly loyal to the Democratic Party. And users can start their own discussions called "diaries".

kos came to Chicago on his tour to promote Crashing the Gate which he wrote with Jerome Armstrong, creator of MyDD.com. Jerome also had a political gig doing some Internet work with Howard Dean.

Ellen of the Tenth took notes on kos' presentation. Crashing the Gate calls for a number of reforms to the Democratic Party, including in the areas of media strategy and consultant reform.

kos also pitched the idea of the Dem Party having three core values:
1. fairness
2. opportunity
3. Investment in our future and in people

See Ellen's blog for the full discussion. And thank her for taking notes.
