Last night we held our regular Chapel Hill Bloggers meetup. Usually 3 to 5 people show up. Last night sixteen (by my count) people showed up. One person in town to do research, one person just moved here, one person from Dook :), one Chapel Hill Town Council member, and many regulars. Such a diverse group of people. Bora has pictures up already. Awesome conversation.
I wish Ruby could have been there. But I don’t feel too bad for her. She was in Montevideo, Uruguay, is going to Austin for SXSW today, and then off to Seatle for NTEN. I’m jealous. (only a little bit) 😀 Thanks to Bora for emailing us about the guests and Anton for his steadfast community building. We owe Anton a lot!
Q: What the hell does this post have to do with Activism?
A: Everything! Community building is EXTREMLY important in movement building. True these folks I met with last night aren’t all part of some movement. But we are all creative people who blog. Creativity is a political act. Viva La Blogs!
