RI Blogosphere party rocks Salon (progressive-style)

RI Future's Brian Hull and David Segal of Demand Progress talk with attendees at the RI Blogosphere Party

Last night's Rhode Island Blogosphere post-holiday party rocked the The Salon in Providence, with more than 100 bloggers, politicos, and media folks kicking back and talking about the state of the world, online and off.

The big local news, of course, is the relaunch of Rhode Island's Future, the state's premier progressive blog, which was dormant most of last year. But with a spiffy redesigned site and a great collection of writing talent, RI Future looks poised to make a well-timed comeback.

Also on hand last night was an advance team from Netroots Nation, coming to town in June, and getting to know local bloggers and progressive activists. (Have you registered yet?)

It was night full of great conversations and the wonderful experience of meeting people IRL that you've been reading online (Hard to believe, in this small state, but true!) Great seeing you, everybody!


The post-holiday party was a smashing success. Well-attended, and great conversation. I look forward to more from Netroots Nation. Keep doing what you're doing!

Hi, iheartrhody...
It was great meeting you too -- and great to see the RI blogosphere turn out!

Keep doing what you're doing too. Folks, if you haven't checked out http://www.iheartrhody.com/ you should go take a look!
