I want to give everyone a status update (previously). We’re up to 20 members on the Libertarian Party Upcoming.org group and
3 all states have official groups (see list below). You can also view all groups that have been tagged “libertarian” and see if you want to join them.
If you haven’t joined already, please do. We can grow our group there to the #1 slot (Flickr holds the title with 288 members), because I know we have way more national peeps than them. If you have a blog, help us out by posting a link to the group. I’m betting with enough blog publicity we could pass Flickr by the end of the year.
State groups (join yours in addition to the national group):
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington State, Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming
[Interesting side item: former Libertarian presidential candidate Michael Badnarik is a member]
Update: Over at the Peirce for Ohio Governor campaign, we officially made the switch last night to Upcoming.org for all of our scheduling. Any state party that wants an easy to use PHP/XML parser need only ask me and I’ll gladly provide.
Another Update: I probably wasn’t clear, the Upcoming.org PHP script is free. As the Google model exemplifies, I can do better if I give away the tools to get content back in an open format. I know this may sound cliche these days, but is Libertarian 2.0 coined yet?
