Many thanks to those of you who contributed to our convention expense fund. We've raised $200.00 so far, and our goal is at least $2,000.00--so if you are a regular reader or commenter on TalkLeft, or you'd just like to help us out, we'd really appreciate it. It will cost us about $3,000 to make the trip, and we promise great coverage--particularly of behind-the-scenes goings-on the mainsteam press may not tell you about. We're calling it news with attitude.

We'll be sending everyone who contributes by paypal an individualized thank-you e-mail. If you'd like to donate anonymously, use Amazon. Both are secure. Many, many thanks.

Cyberjournalist is offering a place for readers to submit questions to the convention bloggers. If there is something in particular you'd like us to cover or focus on, let us know in the comments.
