Overview/History

The slogan of the event is: Real Issues Versus Astroturf - Confronting the Koch Brothers. It is by invitation only.

The conference is an event where progressives and power brokers meet, share ideas with and get inspired by thousands of people who want to control the future of media, technology and democracy.

They are joined by activists, media makers, educators, journalists, artists and policymakers in sessions about journalism and public media; technology and innovation; policy and politics; arts and culture; social justice and movement building; plus how-to workshops and hands-on trainings. Attendees review propagandic films and meet with writers during book signings. Their parties are reportedly legendary, at least in progressive circles.[2]
