Here is a little more from different viewpoints on #OWS.
My interest in this is whether it will be a more permanent social movement; whether it will translate into political power; how it is organizing and what that reflects about the diffusion of technology and organizing “models” in the network society; if it will spread laterally or virally; how it emerges out of the problems with the financial sector and the Great Recession we discussed in class.
One of my favorite news sources is “To The Point, ” a radio show and podcast from KCRW. The host, Warren Olney, does a better job than most at getting his guests to relate and interact. Here is one show on #Occupy Wall Street.
Listening to it got me thinking about how so often you only hear people talking about activists or protestors. I would rather hear them in their own voices.
