Some video clips from Netroots Nation

Couldn’t make it to Netroots Nation, the big national gathering of liberal online activists that began Thursday in San Jose? Well, you could read my story.

Or, I guess, you could see a few small bits of it for yourself. Here’s former Vermont governor and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean rallying the troops:

Here’s former Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass.:

And here’s U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., speaking remotely to introduce keynote speaker U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore.:

More videos later today, hopefully. Meanwhile, Netroots Nation has created Storify recaps of two of yesterday’s panel discussions: “Making Wall Street Tremble: Case Studies from Innovative Corporate Campaigns” and “Beating Back Mansplaining and Other Acts of Sexism in Politics and Organizing.”

And if you want to keep up in real time today, all of the keynotes and some of the panel discussions are being streamed live online.
