Hello, Occupiers! Greetings from Santa Cruz, California!
I'm David "Lefty" Schlesinger, a member of the Media Working Group at Occupation Santa Cruz. Earlier this week, I participated in a conference call which was put together by a national coordination working group at Occupy Wall Street in New York, to start the discussion of ways in which we could foster better collective effort, and share information more effectively. Some sixty Occupations across the country were represented. Some of you may have been participants.
I've got an idea for a shared news service that I'm fleshing out. Since the mainstream media is not covering many of the actual events on the ground, it's up to us to ensure that the news gets out ourselves.
Would there be an interest in something like this?
