After the Meetup i met Jock Gill, who recognized me immediately though i had no idea who he was. Turns out he knows Dan Gillmor at the San Jose Mercury News, who interviewed me today over AIM about the Visible Volunteers project. Dan's visiting campaign headquarters in Burlington, Vermont. A little research reveals that Jock Gill has been very busy; among other things, he was the Internet consultant for Clinton's campaign.
I'm at home now trying to get work done on VV.
