Blogger Markos Moulitsas Zúniga is in Louisville today, speaking in a few minutes at the Metro Democratic Club. The founder of the dailykos blog will be talking about his book, Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots, and the Rise of People-Powered Politics.
At about 9 pm, Markos will be at the Bluegrass Brewing Company (3929 Shelbyville Road) for the regular Drinking Liberally in Louisville.
I've not yet attended the weekly fun, but am giving it some thought for tonight.
Update: I went to the event and met a number of Louisville Democrats, a couple of candidates for public office, and Jim Derych, the author of Confessions of a Former Dittohead.
Many in the crowd had arrived about 7 pm, so I was kind of late in arriving. Most thought Kos was due early, not realizing his plans had changed for the speaking engagement.
Kos actually showed up shortly after 10 pm. A local bookstore brought a stack of books for the authors to autograph and sell, but most of the crowd had gone home. I was actually on my way out, decided to stick around for a few minutes, and then did not end up meeting the blogger. I was home by about 10:30.
