Thoughts on Netroots UK

09 Jan 2011, by in Blogging, Politics

I had intended to blog some further thoughts after Netroots UK, but Sunder has done such a good job at Next Left that I don’t have anything much to add. (I know that doesn’t normally stop me, but it’s Sunday.)

In particular I commend his round-up of links.

So here’s a few pictures instead from the opening session:

    Hi Nigel,

    I’m just out of shot in your first pic (having been pointed here by my girlfriend, who is just in shot).

    I just wanted to leave a quick comment saying that I found your talk really interesting – the graphs showing where shifts in public opinion had (and hadn’t) happened were really interesting, and gave obvious and useful focus to the question ‘what next?’ – which is something not all speakers managed well enough on the day. So, thank you.

    Regards,
    Denny

    Thanks Denny. Lots of people seemed to like what I say, some didn’t – but that shows a good diversity.

    I would have done more pictures, but the battery ran out!

    Hi Nigel, I thought your talk was excellent – a great set-up to the challenge faced by everyone in the room and refreshing to see some geuine strategic thinking about the problem rather than a discussion of tactics. I’d love to ask you a couple of questions over email if possible. Could you send me your contact details or post them here, i can’t seem to find them on the site? I’m on [email protected]

    Thanks again.
