Convention Update

I am scheduled to attend volunteer training for the Democratic National Convention on Saturday morning at Hynes Convention Center, starting at 9am. According to the email I got, I have to go to a "session of Convention Hospitality training provided by Dale Carnegie Training" where presumably they will teach me how to smile and be nice to people. I also will find out what my volunteer role will be and what shifts I'll be working during convention week. I'll post that info over the weekend.

Meanwhile, bigger bloggers than yours truly are getting their credentials to cover the convention from the inside, notably the folks behind TalkLeft and Daily Kos. Apparently those who applied for credentials received email notification yesterday on whether they were accepted or not. Does anyone know of a full listing of bloggers who were credentialed? This would be a useful thing for the convention blog to post.
