JJP is a co-host for this event and the Summit is SOLD OUT. You know how I know that this conference is red-hot? I have never had so many black people come out of the woodwork that I don’t even know trying to get me to hook a brother or sister up. People are playing the race card for tickets. It’s so hot, Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris are coming too!

It’s going to be an historic and seminal event here in the Bay Area. It’s too late to come to the Summit but it’s not too late to grab tickets to the party where you’ll rub shoulders with playas from the blog world, nonprofits, politicos and the best minds Silicon Valley has to offer. We’re running out of tickets to the celebration starting at 7pm PST so get in there while the getting is good. It’s gonna be off the hizzouse AND it’s tax-deductible. Come hang with the beautiful people…the celebration is modeled after the extremely successful and fun Inauguration gala we just did in DC.

I’m speaking this afternoon at the Summit prior to the party. Here’s the deets.

Creating Community Online
4:55 to 6 PM – Lounge

Starting a blog does not necessarily translate into an active online community. Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos, Cheryl Contee of Jack and Jill Politics, Sarah Granger of MOMocrats, and Jason Rosenthal of Ning.com will discuss best practices for those who seek to develop a self-sustaining online community.
