So I’m headed to Charlotte this morning, covering the convention as part of Tumblr’s election-coverage crew. Never did I imagine the auspices under which this frippery might be transacted. I am flattered, slightly giddy, a picnic of nerves and butterflies.
Found this on the street last night. Printed in 1968. Seemed like it would lay bare some perennial American bummer. And it does, but it’s the same bummer as always: America is too convinced of its awesomeness to properly repair its suckiness.
I will be, in part, addressing the design aspects of the convention during my time there. If you have any particular questions about the visuals or the logistics of this thing, well, I can be the vessel that delivers those questions to the appropriate parties. We’ll be a team, you and I.
So, yes, election.tumblr.com. Pardon the lack of actual link—I post via email, so formatting is nil. But yes, do visit.
