Fundraising update: Dean eligible for matching funds! http://www.deanforamerica.com/index.cfm?section=involved&page=contribute
First of all, the donations must be accompanied by your occupation and employer information! These fields are included in both the online contribution form and the printable form (.pdf format). This information is required by the FEC, and if it is included the donation is matched. Second, an individual may donate up to $2000, all of which will be matched by the FEC if the required info is included and it is in increments of $250 or less.
He also confirmed that they're enthusiastic about the Million Dollar Meetup Challenge, and as a matter of fact, it was included in the mailout that was sent earlier today. Everyone at Dean HQ is very impressed by the internet support, and it is a real morale-booster around the office. They are grateful to everyone who's attended the meetups and helped organise the campaign at the grassroots level.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
