linkage1951: We're here at NetRoots Nation 13. And it's my opportunity here to interview one of the recipients of the community quilt. Can I ask you to tell us a bit about what the quilt means to you.
cskendrick: My name is Christian Kendrick. I'm known by the highly secretive name of cskendrick at Daily Kos. The quilt, when it came, was...it was a reminder that there was a world waiting for me. And it was a physical sign of what my wife Mary had already told me that many people online had sent their best wishes and their concerns, and that they had even formed the modern-day version of a concern circle, a Facebook pet group to receive the updates. Most of the folk there were Daily Kos people.
MSSPENTYOUTH QUILT #003
linkage1951: We're at NetRoots Nation, and it's my pleasure to talk to one of the Community Quilt recipients. Can you introduce yourself to our viewers?
msspentyouth: Sure. My name is Kim Yeman (sp?). On Daily Kos, I'm also known as MsSpentYouth. I've been blogging on Daily Kos for oh, many, many a year. Four years ago, just a couple days before I went to a NetRoots Nation Convention in Austin, I believe, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and it's non-cancerous, and it's slow growing, but it's inoperable because of some consequent issues, because I like to be difficult, you know. I'm a true troublemaker.
