The Democratic Convention opens in one week, the Republican Convention opens a week later. Here’s me:
- Tumblr – full content aggregation
- Twitter – microblogging and instant updates
- Friendfeed – aggregated coverage
- Qik – live video updates
- Facebook – background, context, and networking
- Seesmic – video conversation
- Utterz – audio updates
Social Media will be in full force at the Democratic and Republican Conventions – what type of coverage would you like to see? How do you want to get involved?

Since the last Presidential nominating convention in 2004, it has been my goal to attend the conventions in 2008. On Friday, I leave for the Democratic Convention in Denver. The following week, I’ll attending the Republican Convention in Minneapolis.
My first priority, of course, is to cover the events for the Talk Radio News Service via radio. We’ll be hectic, tired, and wired but it’ll be a wonderful experience.
There Will be Creepy Sleepy Shows, and I’ll do what I can to send social media to the world, and be as inclusive of the community – let’s all try to work together! If anyone will be at the conventions, email me at dhp [at] creepysleepy [dot] com
It’s going to be very difficult, with the insanity, to organize video, audio, pictures, and text on the fly – if anyone has suggestions on aggregation on content, let me know!
Props to Jackie and Bhaskar at Qik – they’ve been a HUGE help.
Aaron Brucell has been great with Utterz help. I’ll try to use Utterz to send various audio reports out.
So, the question now is: What type of social media coverage do you want to see?
