We have the space at 339 lafaytte (room 204) its a small room but it can fit 4-5 editors. we are planning on setting up a small set here for globalrevolution rebroadcast as well as hosting a few people who will mix down the streams for occupynyc and globalrevolution. we can also reach out to paper tiger and deep dish and see if we can use their spaces in the same building to host more people. we have a fast server, so footage can be dumped and edited simultaneusly by many people who will plug in with laptops.
so basically we have a space to use for saturday. in general though, i am in the studio now, and there is a lot of road work being done outside which will make it hard to use for anchoring if they dont stop on saturday.

I spoke with MNN yesterday and it seems we won't be able to have
access to their studios for the entire day of Saturday. :( I will
visit there this morning and see what times on Saturday, the studio is
available. It may be possible to have it for a few chunks of hours.
But, I'd like to consider other options. We are looking into the
possibility of setting up shop in another studio near Houston and
Lafayette. Are there other studios available to us, preferably from
Friday to Sunday?
Aside from this, we need to start planning who's going to cover what
and how will the #FILM team be involve? Are we going to try to film
events and do a quick edit to have it air on the livestream, just like
a news story? Or do we just film for archival purposes or for a recap
of events that will be ready by Monday to go online? I imagine that
#LIVESTREAM will be given the most importance as you guys can cover
everything as it happens.
If we do set up a news room somewhere, who will be the anchors? We
need 4-6 people that will be taking turns, maybe more as well as crew
to light and film.
Fix (or anyone), do you have access to a TriCaster? This would help us
to set up a television studio wherever we set up shop.
If there are no pressing agenda points, I think the main topic of
today's 5PM should be about covering this weekend.
