The text above is from the chat window of the “Global Revolution” live stream at about 7:00 this morning (2:00 PM Sunday, 2 October New York time). I tuned in to this live broadcast from the middle of the March to Wall Street yesterday morning, after following Twitter updates from @TheOther99 (also known as “Wall Street”). At the time, I was one of about 19,000 viewers logged on. Many were contributing to the live chat as they watched the action unfold and listened to the play-by-play provided by a citizen journalist, who was one of the protesters on the Brooklyn Bridge heading for the heart of New York City’s financial district. This morning, as I sit down with my first cup of coffee on another fine Dunedin day, I’m checking out Occupy Together, the unofficial hub of activities across the United States, and 15October.net, a site calling for coordinated global action on 15 October. This is way more exciting than the Rugby World Cup!
