October 5th: CABOT Sponsors NEPA Blog Con

 
Early this morning, I was looking into possibly attending this year's NEPA Blog Con on Saturday, October 5th.
 
Check out their list of sponsors here.
 
 
 
 
Interesting decision.
 
More in a few...

  1. Dirty money is still green. Hard to turn it away.

  2. Mother Theresa once said she would take money from the devil to do God's work. (She did have a history of taking money from donors and sending it straight to the Vatican rather than spending it on the people she had made her mission.) I know the ladies who run this worked very hard to find sponsors. Did any anti-fracking groups offer to sponsor, I wonder? I do not believe that this sponsorship in any way implies endorsement or will buy suppression of any anti-fracking bloggers in attendance. (Tickets are still on sale; proceeds benefit Blue Chip Farms.)

  3. Thanks for your comments. I understand what you are saying. Although I've learned never to say never, I hope I'm never in a position where I have to consider accepting money from an industry that is raping our environment at will and creating residual damage that will last for generations. Unfortunately, I can't answer the question about anti-fracking sponsors. Were any called? I wasn't. I'd love to know what Cabot donated, as for a brief moment, I considered the scenario where someone ( or a group of "someones" ) would match Cabot's donation on the condition their $ were returned. I realize it's too late now ( T-shirts, etc. ), but it could have happened.
