I'm all for promoting high-profile stuff on twitter and social media. But I think it would take precious time and focus away from the issues at hand if we had any sort of process for recognizing celebrities etc. during the General Assembly itself.

I have been informally using the special guest language on the twitter feed, and the feedback has been wholly positive, with many RT's. Do people object to my continuing to do that?Another thought is to seamlessly blend celebrity special guests and non-celebrity special guests, as I've been highlighting the stories of many people who've come out to the park who are not especially "famous"

It’s true that in this society celebrity brings unjust privilege, but because these people are well known, their presence brings us more publicity and helps outreach. And Taibibi is a progressive journalist who shares some of our politics, has been one of the main writers attacking Wall St (“Why Hasn’t Anyone From Wall St Gone to Jail?”) and is probably coming to give us supportive coverage. It helps to know such people are around, so we can influence that coverage. I’d like to know he was here.

But it does not give the privilege and distinction at the decision-making process

I am against "special guests". Their influence and fame already gives them plenty of privilege and distinction at the occupation.

A thought: should we have "special guests" at GA's? No special privileges, just shouting out influential folks who come out
