01:25 am - Liberty on the Rocks
Those of you who participated in the Ron Paul campaign probably saw Justine Lam at some point. She was the eCampaign director for the campaign, and she often covered Ron Paul events wearing a hat cam that broadcast live to the world via justin.tv.
She recently moved to the Bay Area, and is planning to start an ongoing social event for local liberty-oriented activists called Liberty on the Rocks. Here’s the announcement:
Well here it goes – looks like Dec. 4 will be the first event for Bay Area Liberty on the Rocks.
Since it’s the first event, I’m not expecting it to be huge, but just a beginning to what this group could become.
It will be important that we create a warm vibe, welcoming liberty-lovers of all stripes and allowing political/philosophical/activist/whateve
r discussions to flourish over libations. Please invite friends, coworkers, family members, anyone that would be friendly toward the ideas and that cares about the direction our country/state is taking.
When? Thursday, Dec. 4 at 7:00PM
Where? @ Ye Olde Hut by the Rockridge Station in Oakland. 5515 College Avenue (between Forest St & Lawton Ave) Oakland, CA 94618
I’m planning to be there–I hope some of you can make it too!

However, I’ve started using it more, and I’ve found that I really like their photo tagging facility. For example, here’s a photo of my high school Academic Decathlon team, on our way to nationals:
It was taken by one of my teammates, Wendee Shulsen. I tagged it with my name, and now it shows up in my album. Cool!( Read the rest of this entry »Collapse )
