ACS Panel: Bloggers as America's Watchdogs

I received the below via a Facebook friend and looks quite good. If you live near Philly it might be well worth attending. You can RSVP with the ACS here.

Here's gist.

Wednesday Feb. 4, 5:30PM -7PM
University of Penn. Law School
3400 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA

Bloggers as America's Watchdog:
New Administration, New Roles

The blogosphere began during the early months of the Bush Administration with opposition and criticism being the dominant modes for online progressives. With a new administration in the White House, how will the role of the netroots change? How do leaders of online opinion see their responsibilities with respect to the new President?
