It would be great to have it as part of this larger URL system, I just want to make sure it is easy to use and that people could access it without having to jump through a lot of hoops to be able to post. Is that possible? I know some html but not much... really I was initially thinking of something simple like a wordpress site but this great! Could it be set up so people posting could potentially just set up accounts with profiles and then a moderator adds them to the blog so they can post whenever they log in? ..basically the same as wordpress? Maybe you have a better way of doing this...I'm know some web stuff but not much. Let me know what ideas you have 
Thanks!

Justine me and a few other people are affiliated with ocoupywallst.org and we are planning to give each occupation a similar system under the URL of occupy.org. Example boston.occupy.org denver.occupy.org..etc so everyone will be on the same system and such. }

What I want is a general feed using all the occupy sub sites something that you want probably. I'll ask Justine about it

I went onto the livestream later to see if I could catch it but it soon got switched over to boston, which is fine because I get that it was an important moment...but I have been waiting to hear more news about what happened at the GA with this and am frustrated to see that when I go onto occupywallstreet.org there is only an update about Boston. This site and nycga.cc do not get updated that often considering how much goes on in one day down at liberty plaza.

There needs to be better sharing of daily events in a way that those who cannot be there can experience them and so as many voices as possible are shared as widely as possible!

Could we get something like this started if not and have anyone who would like to post about events they attended do so? Can we have something like this be very clearly linked from occupywallstreet.org and nycga.cc so those who are looking on as outsiders can be linked there?
