Senator John Edwards to Keynote Gnomedex

I am not sure what I think about this, I have had 24 hours to let it sink in, and received a reply to a message that I sent to Chris about it. The only Politics I talk about on this Blog, is how it seems that a great number of senators, and representatives have not a clue what they are doing in some of these tech bills they have supported.

I have been around politicians all my life, and honestly most of them tell ya what you want to hear, while trying to sell you a bill of goods. I swear though if he starts getting political I’m not sure I will be able to sit their and listen. But I am going to dig around on his voting record on key items that are important to the readership of this blog, and I am gonna ask some hard questions.

But the verdict is still out on whether it is a good idea to bring a speaker in that at least half of the people in the room do not care for. At least if you follow general wisdom that the political split in geeks will be pretty much down the middle risky and yet very interesting pick to say the least.

One thought on “Senator John Edwards to Keynote Gnomedex

  1. He used to be my Senator, and I’m very proud of him and his message. He is one of the more internet friendly politicians, in my opinion, he’s been doing podcasts for over a year. His blog/website is at if you want to read what he represents. I think that the internet savvy he has shown is why Chris invited him to gnomedex.
