I came to Zuccotti Park on a crisp October day, 714 days ago. My camera was an eyewitness to history, while I... fell in love.
But the movement has grown less visible and seemingly more diffuse over the last several months, as city after city has moved
Political paranoia is always driven by what could happen, not, necessarily, what is happening. Can we learn from this destructive history of acrimony and sectarianism or are we doomed to repeat it?
The OWS story is a story about modern media in all of its messy glory. Adbusters has raised the art of lampooning to a level that Mad Magazine or even Saturday Night Live never imagined.
"And if they don't listen," the briefing continues," if they ignore us and put our demands on the back burner like they've
It's a bit of a stretch to make Mark Gitenstein, U.S. Ambassador to Romania, a poster child for technology-fueled activism, but I'm going to take a whack at it.
Adbusters and their fellow Occupiers see Americans -- or, in their own lingo, 'the 99%' -- as gluttonous, obese pigs. What a joyful holiday message.

I don't think the organizers or supporters will be satisfied with Occupy Wall Street unless it bears results, though it alone is an accomplishment: thousands have marched with OWS, and occupations have sprung up throughout the U.S.
These days, everyone wants a piece of Occupy Wall Street, the anti-capitalist camp-out now in Zuccotti Park, just around the way from the New York Stock Exchange. As the organizers have stated -- repeatedly -- no one group or person gets the credit for sparking the movement. However, one instigator is clear: the initial idea came from Adbusters magazine, which put out the call via its listserv in mid-July and fomented the #OccupyWallStreet hashtag on Twitter.

The Huffington Post went down to Zuccotti Park in downtown New York City to talk to people about the 'Occupy Wall St' protest. (10/2011)
The Comfort committee, which handles bedding and clothing, needed donations. A woman from the Food committee said that her
