Occupy Wall Street LiveStream

{h/t:: Chuck Raymond} I think these protests will be interesting to watch. My interest is on the social media angle, particularly as it pertains to ongoing social movements. An overview can be read here in The Observer, which refers to this wearethe99percent Tumblr that is serving as an outlet to crowdsourced rage. Keen observers will note that this is a protest borne of the middle class and rather than scoff at the use of Macbooks and the vegetarian chili consumed by some, it just might be time to re-examine The Battle of Algiers and May 1968 in France for insights.
