Boston, MA [10/21/2011] Content example.... Occupy Boston learned this week....

Content etc....

Occupy Boston started in Dewey Square in Boston on September 30, 2011 and has been directly inspired by our brothers and sisters at Occupy Wall St. in New York, and we stand in solidarity with them. The continuing occupation of Dewey Square—located outside of South Station in the heart of Boston’s Financial District—is just one of more than 120 separate Occupy encampments in cities across the nation and a symbol for “Occupiers” everywhere who support real and lasting change. The spirit of Occupy Wall Street has spread nationwide, and has an unofficial hub at Occupy Together. While these different occupations share many goals and attitudes, they each operate independently, and there is no national organization that can speak for all occupations.

Graphics? (stickers/buttons, posters, etc.)

Should I start a new page here, or Outreach, or somewhere else for files to print posters, stickers, etc.? So far, I've been communicating w/Media about this stuff (I did the stickers), but I'm not sure where the line between Media and Outreach is.

I would create a separate wiki page just for resources and then add links to both the Media and Outreach pages.

Sounds awesome. Added a Graphics page for you and tagged it media so it would appear in left hand nav.

New link name:

Super, thanks!

Videographers, photographers and people with on camera or mic experience.

Make a post here with what experience/interest you have. Lets put together a list of folks interested in covering Occupy Boston.

A few goals could would be to improve quality of low light capture at evening events like GA's. Have commentators broadcast to live stream when there is a break in coverage.

Enable teams to livestream on the move ( at marches ).

Set up a repository to collect and distribute media shot at event.

If there is somebody already working on this let us know their name and we can rally behind them.

Visited the media tent yesterday. It appears there is an effort to collect and distribute video for occupy boston through a google group.

I'll drop the link on the main media page.

More sources for media coverage

re: More sources for media coverage


And another great aggregator of content besides Google News:

(or go to and search for occupy boston.)

This will be a great resource for keep track of the news.

Calendar Item; SPP meeting, Monday, 10/30, 7pm, by the library tent

Can you post it? Thanks.

Highlight Action Items on Calendar?

I'd like to be able to look at the calendar and see ACTION items, (DA, flyering, marches, etc.) quickly. Could they be in red or something? Thanks.
