What do you think friends?
Thursday 6pm (Pacific Time) onward.

Mr Quill, can you open & watch the following live video:
& do you feel like staying up into the wee hours on Thursday night?

Team Live-blogging? A post that everyone can edit?
I say we have different colors like they do at the Economist:

How does the people feel about this idea?
I also propose, if y'all are into it, just to standardize the institution that evening, that we agree on a common drink. I propose Jim Beam whiskey, but that's open for (eighteen or nineteen) debates.

I'm in.

How about something more with hops? It's Colorado's biggest crop.

Yes. Also Liam is here with me in NY, so he will hopefully participate in the live-blogging from this end. I fear we may not understand the logistics of live blogging, could someone briefly explain what it entails? (I'm looking at you, J.Henry)
what time shall we commence?
I approve of Jim Beam. I may officialy re-christen it "Joe Biden" for the night.

- Show quoted text -

"Let no-one be discouraged by the belief that there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills- against misery and ignorance, injustice and violence...few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

- Robert F. Kennedy

I love the idea, friends. Unfortunately, as a [____________], I must decline the opportunity...

All right, that's a lie. Or rather, it's a lie that I would care about such things. Unfortunately, the reality of my internet connection is that video streaming is not really a possibility. Also, I think I will actually be boarding a bus at about that time to go to what will without a doubt be a fascinating [_________] about how super-awesome it's going to be to get started with actually [_________]l. um... but I'll try to hit you guys up early in the morning before I leave.

Give 'em hell, kids.

Also, go Sox! Bury those Yankees.

And tomorrow evening I'll drink some Joe Biden to your health.

Keep me posted on future team-blogging exercises.

Dearest Beloved.

I'm torn between doing it the Economist style, with people editing & updating the content of a post in different colors (Mrs Red, Mr Purple, et cetera) with the times in bold, like 7:15pm, all times Mountain? Or, alternately, as Mr Brains suggested, like the Daily Kos, having a short post or a series of short posts, & all our minute-by-minute comments can be in the comment section.

So I suggest: BOTH. I'll make you all "blog administrators", & anything like videos or pictures or transcendental poetry can be added to the body, & grow organically, & comments will be comments, & theoretically anyone on the BLOGOSPHERE can join-in, don't hold your breasts.. & we'll have perhaps a couple different posts thru-out the evening, & play it by the dog's nipples
Bryan, as much as I love New Belgium's 1554 Black Ale (elitist beer from Fort Collins, but is it black enough?), I think Joe-Biden-on-the-Colorado-
Rocks wins the silent majority. Breasts.

Liam, a short explanation of live-blogging, live-blog-parodies, & other oddities to your ear: Welcome to the 21st-century, live free or get out.

I will always love you,
J.H. Hassan D. Welsch
