Scenes from Web 2.0

Lots of reporters and bloggers are twittering from the convention. (This includes me, though I don't know that I'll be sharing anything all that interesting that I won't also mention here.) CSPAN is collecting tweets that use the #DNC08 hashtag, but lots of people forget to use that, so I thought I'd highlight a few of this afternoon's interesting/funny tweets:

CQDNC Al Sharpton's advice for Michelle Obama tonight: "Just be Michelle." #dnc08

daveweigel Al Sharpton gets pocket Constitution shoved in face, asked for sig. "I don't sign anything I haven't read."

jdickerson Cindy McCain to Georgia. If you want to get into all the Michelle Obama stories on her big night that's one way to do it.

marcambinder Obama camp (justifiably) frustrated with coverage of HRC / O spat. People who voted for Hillary not necessarily Hillary voters

baltsunlive montana is "dead dang tied" says the charming schweitzer

FishbowlDC #DNC08 Quin Hillyer and I stood for the pledge of allegiance. That may have been it. Star Spangled Banner getting similar snoozy reception

I should note, to be fair, that the last one (by Patrick Gavin of FishbowlDC) isn't refering to the convention hall, where people did stand for the pledge and the national anthem. I'm not sure where Gavin was when he tweeted that. Quin? UPDATE: Quin tells me it was the "practice" pledge/anthem -- yes, apparently this needed to be rehearsed.
