With meetup.com probably going bankrupt, its time for the DNC to step up to the plate.
The Democratic Party needs to come up with a similar, grassroots tool like meetup. There are more people than we know that want to get involved in the party, but county and local party meetings are not the place for them. Meetups are a great forum to tap into these great people.
We need to push the party to make sure we use these meetings to build the grassroots and help grow and invigorate the party!
Markos Moulitsas Zúniga (of dailykos.com fame) replied to my post on his website and said this:
"MeetUp is going out of business this is their last-gasp desperation attempt to stave off bankruptcy. I'd focus on finding an alternative solution."
So, now we know. The questions are:
1) what will that alternative be?
2) will the DNC help make it happen?
