I spoke with Thorin on Saturday about this... I told him that I personally am concerned with where his funding is coming from and how that reflects on the collective. He said he'd be willing to sit down and have a conversation with the media team. This needs to be handled delicately for a variety of reasons...
our ability to overcome conflict within and without is whats sets us apart.  Let's not forget the value system on which this movement is based.
I am more than happy to diplomatically deal with this as soon as I kick this damn cold.

I spoke to some people on thorins team today and encouraged them to have a meeting and discuss the hiarchy issue.  I think what will happen is that either that group adapts the same principles or a number of people working with him will be joining us in the near future.

we should definitely have a meeting about this- thorin has been on the agenda for many days, he and his livestream channel are hierarchal and represent only his views which to this point have been privately funded. he isn't a part of this media committee formally, and has claimed not to be responsible to the general assembly, this precludes him from general assembly funding- his channel merely benefits from having a user name which implicates being a part of the working group. his stream unfortunately does not conform to any of the principles set out but the livestream subcommitee- which to this point have been posted to this google group. we will finish up our livestream primer and faq and have it posted as soon as possible. we would like very much for this issue to reach some sort of resolution.
