    Have a free couple of hours? Interested to hear the brightest, best, most influential, notorious, or powerful in usually a small foundation or university environment, for free? Listings every week. Be polite, respect the speakers and the organizations (of every political stripe) that host these and make them available. Network, join a Q&A with a former Cabinet member, political operative, lobbyist or journalist before they head to CNN or are written up in the Post, or get indicted, get a card to send a question for a seriously awesome response—or alibi. – uniquely DC – MST

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a
    similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam
    responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    • Hi – thanks for commenting. I am confused…spam in blog comments or just spam in emails?
      My mediaseentoo blog actually has more of a problem with junk on twitter. WordPress allows you to filter spam – so I have had very few there.
      Email? I have multiple email accounts (yahoo, gmail, etc.) and don’t really get that much spam, also use Macs only.
