So excited to hear about other occupations in the US.  America is waking up.

We need to increase our documentation.  I'll help organize this.  If we *spin up a mediawiki* I'll point occupyeverywhere to it and start organizing people to garden different sections.  A few people in arts and culture already offered.

Doh! Devin I just saw this (the record it request)  I dont think I can on my skype phone, OccupyIndy might be able to tho next time?

We just did a quick call to talk about GA, working groups OWS/IWG activities from the perspective of people not in NYC. I talked a bit about what I knew on the as well as upcoming permabank projects what the groups are working on based on discussions to date.  Exchanged a bit of info on whats happening with the Occupy Indy folks which includes
  • Obtaining permits for protest activities
  • They sent a group over to where Rick Perry was speaking today!
  • occupying the state capital 
  • ideas for the upcoming year on other activist activity (I'll not steal OccupyIndy's thunder here)
I talked a little bit about whats going on here in Denver a bit, and that it would be great to see the following items emerge from the GA and working groups as time permits  (is this outreach's charter? Media's?)
  • GA & working groups construction kit: a guide / overview that goes into more detail then the tri-fold pamphlet. From the discussion we agreed that there is more we would like to know about the on the ground processes and how things work there.
  • Globalization of the GA and Working groups to the Occupy! protest sites everywhere (national groupsourcing and the power it represents)
  • and of course  I suggested checking out  to yet another person to get people thinking through online voting issues
It was a good meeting, we'll be doing it again, I plan to reach out to "occupy denver's info tech" group as well for the next call... I'm trying to find a good wireless solution for them, the lead I had fell through here... next item on the needs list "army tents"

Please please please record the call.  I think we should start archiving questions from participants in other occupations and use them to build out a substantial FAQ.
