The 17th Annual State Policy Network Conference

-By Warner Todd Huston

The first half of this week I’ll be attending the State Policy Network’s annual meeting, this year in Asheville, North Carolina. It is being held at The Gove, a fantastic (and huge) hotel/resort complex here in the beautiful North Carolina hills.

I will be attending all sorts of interesting seminars on the New Media, organizing, funding, etc. It’s a pretty jam packed schedule, so I am not sure how much time I will have for reporting back.

The Gove is a testament to American can-do spirit that has been stifled by government today. This humongous complex was built by a family in a years time with the aide of one steam shovel and a crew of men with mules, pulleys, and ropes.

In any case, I hope to get back to the hotel here and write a bit about the first day later tonight.
