Unity08 Meeting 4/16/07
A new staffer at Unity08 has asked people to come to a meeting in Washington, D.C. on April 16, 2007 to talk about Unity08. Just passing it on if you are close and interested — make a request by following that link and, yes, signing up on Unity08.
This is a meeting for the “most enthusiastic and committed Web site users,” which does not include me, since I am neither enthusiastic nor committed to Unity08. I have two young kids I can’t leave behind in Columbus, but even if I could leave them behind I wouldn’t in this case. I’m not going to crash the gates of Unity08 in an uninvited manner, especially because I’ve come to the conclusion that without a) a favorable ruling from a judge allowing Unity08 to collect unlimited-size donations and contributions or b) the co-optation of Unity08 infrastructure by a billionaire like Michael Bloomberg, Unity08 is clearly going nowhere. I will continue to watch the organization as it either follows Route A or Route B (in which case Unity08 will deserve any populist’s ire) or dies a slow death (in which case I will be mightily relieved).
