Debate-watching party in Berkeley

Tuesday, September 30, 2008 by Dave Winer.

Raines Cohen is organizing a debate watching party at the Hillside Club in Berkeley on Thursday night.  Permalink to this paragraph

I'm going to help out with some of the technical work. We're going to do it all-digital, with three projected computers, so there will be lots of options for back-channel stuff. Of course there will be IRC and food from the Cheeseboard and the Thursday farmer's market, and a small charge for the rental of the club and eats. Permalink to this paragraph

I'd like to say it's a non-partisan party, but that would probably be a stretch, given that it is Berkeley.  Permalink to this paragraph
