"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

ADMIN: zonkboard

posted by Aziz P. at Monday, June 02, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Fellow Deanizens - I'd like to solicit some site feedback. The DeanBlog has been slow to load for some readers and the culprit seems to be the ZonkBoard. Do you like that feature? Should we dump it and replace it with periodic (ie, regular) open threads? Is there a better Zonkboard-type accessory that anyone knows of that has faster loading times or features that we should switch to[1]?

Feel free to use the comments as an open thread about the DeanBlog in general - suggestions, comments, what you hate, etc. I will ask my fellow bloggers (The Dean Team) to help me find solutions to any issues.

[1] including non-free services - I intend to reserve the sole right to fund this website's expenses myself :)

About Nation-Building

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.
