These guys (meerkat media out of NYC) have put this together about a month
ago, which I think kind of  gets to what you're talking about.

We're coming together to create video content. First is a general outline
video of the entire movement to educate all, complete with succinct
facilitation/ga/consensus information/reasons.

I already shot a facilitation training video that needs to be edited, Lisa
Fithian's workshop, which can work for part of this project. We won't need
to shoot more than another half a day or so for this, and try to be
organized and inclusive when editing.

If anyone can help edit the workshop itself for me it will be a big help.

Here's a video "GA" from Atlanta of a really ironic and non-direct
democracy/consensus process, which was ows in the beginning. (Why are they
using the human mic if they have a real mic?)

Join our project organizer:
- I added the media production project.

Let's test it out for our community's great need for a succinct and
continuous narrative. All groups, track our progress on the google group
also in case this fails. Forward an email to people to come join us in
producing media. This is a trial of a system that we need that organizes
needs and offers so that people can grow together.

Subject: Communications from NC & SC...

Hello all

This is Charlie from the Mobile Occupation (Occupy Within Tour). Just
wanted to keep you in the loop with any communications being sent my seems like there is a growing awareness for the need to send a
team down to the other occupations - feedback is that it is very
disorganized and they can use some help with learning how to facilitate a
GA, etc.

Also, we are set to make an announce to the GA tonight - statement &
minutes are on our website.  Looking to coordinate our proposal and begin
to connect with other cities...  We are asking for your support...if you
want to join the group we meet Monday, Wednesday & Friday @ 11am at 60

Subject: Hi from Charleston

Hey there,

Dallas said you guys were heading to Fla and I was hoping that you would
be able to stop in Charleston, SC on the way.  I've been on
occupywallstnyc livestream for about 3 weeks everyday and just went to
our local GA meeting, which is every Thursday.  It was unorganized with a
lot of duplication amongst committees (working groups) which I guess can
go with the horizontal model - but one faction of the group wants to be
violent from what I was told and broke off from the GA to discuss a
direct action that may include that (I was hoping they just meant civil
disobedience but I was told they actually want violence).  I think we
really need a solid tethering to NYC to get this on the right track.  We
could use your help if you can stop here.  It would need to be on a
Thursday more than likely, but we could possibly organize outside those
parameters if necessary.  It's a beautiful city with some great people
and you're welcome to use my home as a base -  I have room to park the

Thanks so much!

Greetings from Durham, N.C.
We are struggling in the very early stages (maybe a month) of trying to
build an OccupyDurham movement.  Things are quite challenging.  There
was a lot of initial apparent energy which seems to have dissipated
quickly.  Is there anyone there who we could bring down (providing
transportation, housing, food) for a visit to train facilitation people
in working with a GA approach/framework, and perhaps to help us digest
our experiences so far and give us some support?
I'm writing as an individual at the moment and would appreciate
responses from you all that I will then take to the group for further
action.  There's a lot of good heart here, but we are floundering pretty
severely at the moment.  It looks to me like the right help could make a
big difference in how this unfolds.
Whether you have the resources to offer the kind of help I'm looking for
or not, THANKS for all that you do!
With love and good wishes,
