I'll be going to the Progressive Media Summit meeting, sponsored by the Democratic Senate Outreach committee on Wednesday.

It's my third year attending this invitation only event that in past years has had 35-45 progressive media attendees, including Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Bill Press, Chris Hayes, David Kagrox Waldman, Nancy Wheeler, Jane Hamsher, Mark Levine, David Korn-- and me.

It's a chance to meet, in fairly intimate circumstances, with about two dozen Democratic senators, with one-on-one face-to-face time.

Any suggestions on questions to ask them or things to tell them?

please post your suggestions as a comment.

Here is a collection of pics from last year, taken by OEN managing editor Cheryl Biren Wright who also represented OEN last year.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
