I’ve been live-blogging OWS here daily since October 1. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. All times ET. My new e-book, just out, is "40 Days That Shook the World: From Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Everywhere.".
—Go HERE for the Friday blog, now posted.
11:05 Third Eye Blind one of first to come out with OWS-backing single, "If There Ever Was a Time," complete with refernces to "Meet me down at Zuccotti park" and pepper-spraying and tear gas. They write: Stephan Jenkins, "whose been active for years in progressive politics, sees this as a galvanizing moment. ‘I hope it achieves its goals of starting new politics that are counter to the trend towards oligarchy that’s been increasingly foisted on us these last few years’." They are offering free download while urging people to donate to Occupy.
10:20 Another wild and creative image today: Remember when the Berkeley camp got raided overnight and they were ordered not to pitch tents at Sproul Plaza? No problem. Today they got around it by floating them OFF the ground, on balloons. Our "space" indeed.
9:40 Great photo from L.A. today of huge and colorful crowd, from LA Times. … Occupy Philly getting evicted in a few minutes, making decision on where to move.
9:30 I linked to this earlier but here is full two-minute video from Time on my man, Tim Pool, the now famous NY livestreamer who deserves a Pulizer or Peabody nomination or something (maybe a group reward with a few other livestreamers).
