Where I've Been

I know there hasn’t been much new up on the site lately, but I have a good excuse. Madison, WI has been the site of the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ national annual convention this past weekend. As a member of the Madison Independent Media Center, I’ve been heavily involved in covering the event and related street actions.
From the 10-plus pages of stories that have been filed about the event and the live internet radio webstream that we had up, it has been incredibly busy, yet incredibly exhilirating. I finally slept for 17 hours yesterday.
I’m sure I’ll have more to say about this later, but for now the biggest news is that a reporter for our IMC, Chris Kaihatsu, who was visiting from Chicago (where he’s also active with the Chicago IMC), was arrested during a protest Sunday. Bad thing to see freedom of the press under attack like this. There’s tons of stuff up on the IMC about this, but I’m too tired to list it all.
Anyway, work will begin on fleshing out the site soon enough.
