Okay, some news for all you fine Atriots.

The humor panel is shaping up: Moderated by Thers, with watertiger, TRex, Gavin from Sadly, No! (or possibly one of his cobloggers), and maybe Attaturk and TBogg (depends on meatspace work schedule). Other invited but not confirmed panelists include Ted Rall and Tom Tomorrow.

The blogging as journalism panel is pretty set as well: moderated by Susie Madrak, and featuring Jane Hamsher, our own Athenae, and possibly Will Bunch.

The economics panel has Atrios, Echidne, and, quite possibly, the most Conscientious Liberal of them All, Paul F-ing Krugman! (waiting to hear back on that).

Digby, I figure, is a plenary speaker. Here's why. (Who's that sweaty lunk with the appalling posture? I'm telling his seventh-grade gym teacher!)

And soon I'll have news on a fabulous concert event of fabulous fabulousness!

Speaking as one with all the social skills of a junkyard dog on meth, where do I sign the loyalty oath? Which is the hotel de preference? I'm so not familiar with Philly. Can I whine that I'd rather do New York? I know New York. I LIKE New York.

Oh. The sweaty lunk. OK, I get it.

Whose nude photos do I need to expose before I get an invite? Simels again?

Thank you all for getting this thing together. I hope that us regular folk can reward you with food and/or drink for all of your preparation.

Can't wait to meet everyone of you!
