Hi Beka, Winter, Snafu et al.
Just to explain the confusion about the websites:

Occupywallst.org is an autonomous support group for the occupation, they have independently supported the movement for sometime now.

NYCGA.cc (NYC General Assembly) was formed back in JULY before Sept 17th as just that: the website for the general assembly of NYC- the main public group that meets daily at 7pm to discuss public concerns.

NYCGA WORKING & THEMATIVE GROUP lIST http://nycga.cc/groups/
Within the NYCGA there are several working groups, one of them is INFO working group, with stands in the park. The INFO is a working group of NYCGA not OWS. (I think their email maybe confusing with the prefix OWS.)

In anycase, the internet group here can put up any minutes you have, on the NYCGA site, just send them to us, if you are heading up a working group and plan to be adding daily minutes we might be able to set up an account for you.



Best,
Antonio Serna

Actually you are bringing a very interesting question. I just heard that
occupywallst.org <http://occupywallst.org/> is just a group of 4
individuals who do not necessarily respond to OWS. If that is true it is
an untenable situation, and perhaps the reason of the unresponsiveness
that I have also heard in many corners of the plaza. OWS should have
direct online presence, with a LOT of working unemployed people, not a
somehow "friendly" entity of a few people willing or not willing to post
content.

    I agree with Beka, the site of the GA should be more visible from
    occupywallst.org <http://occupywallst.org>. As of now, there is the
    tab NYCGA, but it is rather cryptic and I don't think it draws much
    attention/traffic.

    Why don't we add a link on the right-hand column, right below the
    Where, Help&Directions, etc that says something like

    "New York City General Assembly: Working Groups, Minutes, and
    Official Declarations."

    It would also make a lot of sense to set up Working Groups lists
    (e.g. sept17-outreach@...) that can be easily accessed from the
    NYCGA web site.

    *Is there a listserv for working group checkins and coordination,

    Thanks, and apologies if this is the wrong forum.
