The Night I Became a Hashtag….

Yesterday’s “Hashtags ain’t winnin’ no elections on MY watch” article stirred up the expected reaction on Twitter, with Alan Rosenblatt among others making cogent points to counter my bold declaration. But, Asher Huey wins the prize: he coined a new hashtag, #ColinDelanyIsWrong, which I shall now wear as a badge of honor (another casualty was regular contributor Beth Becker, who earned the tag #BethBeckerIsACrazyLOLcatsLady because, well, she’s a crazy LOLcats lady). Good times all around! Can’t wait until #ColinDelanyIsWrong is scrawled illegibly on fine bathroom walls across The Nation’s Capital — only then, finally, will I have Arrived.

Coming Soon: The 2011 CampaignTech Conference, November 10-11

Here’s a little something for your calendar: the 2011 CampaignTech Conference (the spiritual successor to the long-running PoliticsOnline Conference, which was dear to my heart) will take place in November right here in the lovely D of C. I’ll be speaking on a panel about assembling an activist blogger network, one of many discussions that should completely rock. Here are the details; I’d love to see you there.

The 2011 CampaignTech Conference, will be held on November 10 and 11 in Washington, DC. It’s being hosted by Campaigns & Elections magazine, and CampaignTech sessions are designed specifically for the practitioners in the political space and crafted for your role in the political process.

  • Candidates will gain the insights they need to communicate effectively in the digital era and learn how to avoid common pitfalls.
  • Campaign professionals will learn how to incorporate the latest and most effective digital tactics into their electoral arsenals.
  • Non-profit advocates will refine their digital organizing and outreach skills in preparation for the election year.
  • Technologists will gain intellectual nourishment and inspiration from each other — and their heroes outside the profession.

The conference is also hosting the 2011 CampaignTech Innovator Awards, designed to recognize achievement in digital politics and advocacy. Nominations are open until October 14, 2011. If you’re interested in attending, check out the agenda and register online.

Hope you can make it! Update: Julie Germany links to the blogs of several of the speakers, our own Epolitics.com among ‘em.
