We did discuss this in the work group yesterday and today. That we really need to have SOMETHING for this weekend. We will use the media daily fund and after this weekend changes can be made. We can print these on a copy machine if needed, put them in a hollow lanyard or badge then move forward with a more determined permanent projection of who we are. katie did I wonderful job with the charter and I do stand behind those words. It would even be nice if we could have something for the MAJOR music performance at 12pm Thursday.

Thank you for your time

This is a time critical issue and I think we may be over thinking this a bit.  We need to understand who is on media and be able to not only identify ourselves to others but especially among ourselves.  I understand the desire to have an iconic logo that represents what Occupy Media stands for.  But at this point we've been talking about creating badges for a week with no real action.

If Anya or Pete want to submit another version I would propose that we attempt to accept it VIA ONLINE consensus and use the daily $100 petty cash assigned to each working group to pay for production.  Once these badges are produced we can distribute them at the MEDIA meeting to participants who have attended multiple meetings and understand/embody the values that we uphold.

This needs to happen by this weekend.  Going forward if we want to revise the Media Badges based on a better logo I think that can still happen.

All great ideas, I had suggested hats so that in a crowd when torsos and sleeves can’t be seen hats are still generally visible…

What about an armband with MEDIA or a big M screenprinted or stenciled on it.

I can make the screen or and screenprint it in my house and bring a few over. Stencil would be even easier to do.

Although I do see the need for us to easily identify each other I do agree with Abe on this as well, perhaps a compromise could be a colored hat of some sort.  

I only suggest this so that during the marches we can identify who is where and that all angles are covered if/when something happens.
