Hey Evy,
I would like to invite you to join us over at the Politics and
Electoral Reform movement group: http://www.nycga.net/groups/political-and-electoral-reform/
We meet two times a week Thursday 8pm and Sunday 3pm at 60 Wall and
also have a pretty lively discussion going on the forums. We would be
happy to have you if you would like to join us.

Be well.

Chaz,
Are you in charge of this group?  If not, please don't tell me what to do
since there are numerous postings by others about any number of things that
have nothing to do with the internet.

If you want me to go away, please send me a link on how to start a group.
I've asked for instructions but have not received any info.
Best,
Evy

Evy,
   I'd like to remind you that this group's focus is implementation and
advancement of Internet technologies to support NYCGA and OWS. This is not
a platform for promoting specific, albeit important, issues and agendas. As
has been said in the past on this list, there are numerous groups and
outlets for getting involved and gathering support for issues, and failing
that- you are always welcome to create a group. That group will receive an
equal amount of attention and support from the IWG as all other groups do
inasmuch as the IWG can provide IT related services to them.
   If you were to create a Whistleblowers Work Group you could have free
reign to publish material pertaining to that subject. Those interested
would have the choice to get notified of events and participate if they
desired. This list is not a soapbox or forum for any individual, issue, or
group that is not directly involved in the propagation and delivery of
Internet technologies for the NYCGA and OWS as a whole.

kindly,
chaz

Hello All,
I want to bring something to the attention of everyone who seeks to
create change.  The military scandal of desecrating fallen veterans bodies
is shocking.

http://whistlewatch.org/2011/11/special-counsel-lerner-again-stands-u...

No matter your view on war, it is not acceptable to dump the dead and
harm the whistleblowers.  The Air Force covered up the truth.  Please get
this story out.  Special Counsel Lerner will be on CBS at 6 pm eastern.
Thank you.
Best,
Evy

Hi Devin,
Love an OWS  team!  The group should first and foremost want to protect
those who wish to make public interest disclosures.  PID's should be
encouraged to prevent fraud, waste, mismanagement and specific dangers to
public health and safety.  PID's save money, the environment, guard the
food, drug and manufacturing supplies, protect tax payer money and a host
of other day to day things like consumer protections and banking laws...

Our website has a button near the top right titled "Help & Safe Harbor"
that can be clicked on.  It enters a very secure software system for
reporting.  You can report everything from bullying to serious threats of
harm to the public.  When someone reports, I receive immediate
notification. I field to a group of experts for resources, legal counsel,
other non profits-public interest groups.  A reporter can ask for help or
simply dump info and remain anonymous or in some cases, there may be a
reward available.  Those situations involve serious litigation.  I refer to
lawyers who know False Claims Act, Dodd-Frank, SEC, IRS, DOL, DOJ & State
actions.

If the reporter is a whistleblower who is being retaliated against;
i.e., a nuclear safety officer is being threatened if they go to OSHA---I
may help notify government agencies of wrongdoing.  If the whistleblower
was fired, we also get them to a referral. Referrals are free.
Best,
Evy

Evy, a good place to start would be to articulate what the group would
do.  If you could organize a team to process disclosures (organize
documentation, generate news stories/court cases, etc) then I'm sure we
could find people to make disclosures.

Did you say your website has a secure process for uploading info?  Can
you explain that a bit more?

Devin,
Thank you for reading!  Public Interest Disclosures is best because it
works well with the idea that the public has a right to know.  Several
other countries have adopted this concept since whistleblower has negative
connotations although historically what it truly means is to alert
officials, warn others and the public of criminal activity and/or danger.
OWS might like to carry whistles in protests.  The symbol will be very
clear and far better then protesters yelling at observers that they are
marching for them.

How do I form a whistleblower and public policy group?
Best,
Evy

Evy, point taken about the word "leaks."  I won't use it anymore -
I'll use the term "disclosures".

Andrew, we agree about the potential for occupy.net to host
subdomains for occupations.  I just requires a lot more organizing of
developers.

On Tue, Nov 8, 2011 at 2:59 PM, Andrew Mallis <o...@ideograph.ca>wrote:

just a thought, but occupy.net as a base URL would seem to support
occupation-specific subdomains quite well, i.e.

denver.occupy.net
newyork.occupy.net

some cities have a hard time securing a short, logical domain name.

Hi folks.  I was informed a few hours ago that our very own Dan was
the owner of occupy.net.  I think that's a much better name than
occupyeverywhere,org for our technology group to organize around.

I propose we consolidate our projects under the occupy.net URL.
Good example is the following:

*news.occupy.net <http://wire.occupy.net/> =
sdboyerdev.devcloud.acquia-sites.com
*wiki.occupy.net = wiki.occupyeverywhere.org
*crm.occupy.net = owsoutreach.civicactions.net
*mail.occupy.net =http://webmail.occupyeverything.info/
*register.occupy.net =
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&formkey=dHVnLUl...
*I need someone to implement this in our civi.  Please connect with
me if you're interested.*
*lists.occupy.net = consolidation of our lists.
*freenet.occupy.net = network status information from freedom
tower, etc
*forum.occupy.net = forum.occupyeverywhere.org

Let's discuss and, if there's consensus, sprint this out after the
spokes council this evening.

Proposed copy for the front page of occupy.net is here:
http://wiki.occupyeverywhere.org/index.php/Occupy.net
