I've long been a fan of Digby's writing, as many folks in the liberal blogosphere have been. Today, she broke with her anonymity to speak at the Take Back America conference, and it's not to be missed.
As I wrote over at her site, her characteristic wit comes across beautifully in her delivery. She offers a great history of the liberal blogosphere, a wry rebuttal of its critics, an on-target critique of the media and tremendous inspiration, all in a very short amount of time. If I want to bring anyone up to speed about what liberal blogging is about, why I blog (and also why I read and link Digby's work all the time!), I think I'll just link this video. It says it all so eloquently.
I sincerely hope that sacrificing some of her privacy won't cause her too much turmoil. Her writing has always been insightful and superb, but this speech was exciting, inspiring, and much appreciated. Brava! Thank you, Digby.
Feel free to try to out-gush me in the thread Dover Bitch set up at Hullabaloo.
I first saw this video over at Firedoglake.
You can see some of the other videos from the conference here (hat tip to Nicole Belle). I know I'll be trying to watch quite a few.
