#wiunion #wirecall Now going live - interview with Madison, Wisconsin citizen-journalist Nicole.
Nicole recorded a conversation with a DMV clerk and the video went viral. Her son was asked to show “activity” on his bank statement when he was trying to get a a VOTER ID recently…indicating that not only did he have to provide documents, but he had to have enough finances to get a voter ID. - Alarming.
Nicole recently went to New Orleans to speak at a press briefing on ALEC - the American Legislative Exchange Council. We’ll discuss long-term protesting in Wisconsin, citizen journalism, ALEC, suppression of the vote in WI, and Wisconsin’s historic set of recall elections today… .find our streaming audio at bluecheddar.net [where it will also be archived]
”Reports of people on the ground in WI trying to convince voters that you must have an ID to vote,
they’re hooting and hollering, waving signs in the air. Truth be told, this law doesn’t take effect till 2012. So get out there and vote WI!” REPOST PLEASE! - - this was posted on my facebook by a friend.
The sign-waving and “hooting and hollering”…I’d like to hear more about it - Sounds extreme.
#wiunion #wirecall Cool Wisconsin recall stuff you can find on the blue cheddar blog
Tweet Widget! - - I put a widget in my blog that feeds only tweets from a hand-picked set of Wisconsin tweeters. It’s helpful for the people who don’t really “get” twitter or get freaked out by the twitter trolls. I think even twitter pros like it.
Especially nice for your facebook-only pals
A Separate Chat Widget! - - Coming up very shortly, a separate chat widget for another set of people to chat about the recalls and possibly to request things for their campaign headquarters etc.
Either Appleton Wonk or I will focus on hanging out in that chat space every hour on the hour from about 9am-9PM tomorrow.
Ustreaming 9:30AM-9:30PM tomorrow - - Now this is a dicey announcement, but, both Appleton Wonk and I will have our Ustream stuff at the ready if we nab some interviewees. We’ll shoot for doing that at the half-hour mark at any given hour.
Blog theme changed - - Yeah. Great time to change a theme, right? Basically, my beautifully minimal theme wasn’t doing some stuff right. So I picked a new basic theme that works. Hope it doesn’t freak anybody out!
[If you’re pissed your account didn’t make the tweet widget: I’m sorry if you are a tweeter that did not make the cut BUT I selected peeps who were tweeting about the recalls A LOT already by Sunday. And I do not have an unlimited # of twitter accounts I can put in there! HOWEVER - You can tweet me about getting into the chat widget if that’s any consolation! :) ]
