Netroots Nation, the lefty bloggers convention, is coming to Providence in June, as the Phoenix first reported (toot! toot!). And it's come into sharper view today with the release of the panels and speakers.
There is some of the building block stuff - a session on building a political base for elections, for instance. But there are more whimsical entries, too. Joel Silberman, a director and media trainer, will lead "Presence and Authenticity: The Key to Being a Media Star," which will focus on how to turn the techniques of professional actors into winning media appearances.
Another is titled "Your Phone is Political." Senator Ciccone, I understand, has been added as a speaker.
