thanks, chaz! unfortunately I don't have any answers or even
suggestions for your other ideas (which address an important issue!).
I've been lurking in this group for a while, but I still have no sense
of how things are being coordinated or if there is some other place
where communication/organization is happening...

Excellent work!
This brings up the question of what do we do with all these great ideas? How
can the site be a tool for the sharing of proposals? If the NYCGA is going
to help facilitate the exchange of ideas for the OWS/et al protesters on
this site what will that mechanism be? Have you considered the Document
Revisions plugin for WordPress?
Is there an existing technology roadmap for the site? If not those, that
have been working on the site should create one so people who desperately
want to contribute can know what the feature set is what work may still be
required. If site features that were mandatory for the initial site launch
were known as well as feature development for future phases, work could be
better organized.

Just came across this article, and I've got to say that I really like
the first point:

"1. Break up the monopolies. The so-called "Too Big to Fail" financial
companies  now sometimes called by the more accurate term
"Systemically Dangerous Institutions"  are a direct threat to
national security. They are above the law and above market
consequence, making them more dangerous and unaccountable than a
thousand mafias combined. There are about 20 such firms in America,
and they need to be dismantled; a good start would be to repeal the
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and mandate the separation of insurance
companies, investment banks and commercial banks."
