I love this idea! I think Organize For Occupation and Picture the

Homeless would both be good allies --

I won't be in Zuccotti Park much for the next few days, but if some

folks wanna pull together a working group, I can try contacting these

orgs and begin coordinating. I'm slightly acquainted with a few folks

from these groups. Also, I know a talented coder who may be willing to

lend some help, though he's got a lot on his plate these days...
