Well last night and this morning I tried to pay attention to what the Occupy Wall Street crowd were doing. They have a Livestream with video and chat. It was educational, but probably not in the way the people doing it would like.
Lets see one of the people they interviewed last night said, "Hi my name is Henry. I am from Mobile, AL. I quit school and I quit my job to be here." One word for this guy - IDIOT!
Their idea of 'public' safety is something to behold. The one 'security' person who was clad in The North Face jacket they talked to spoke of de-escalation. Also last night they had someone try to take stuff and the concern of one commentator was not the theft itself.
They also had a playlist. The Beatles Revolution was played but the lyrics about 'count me out' I did not hear. Odd. Next song was California Dreamin. Then they switched to something modern and well all that song sounded like was a depressed stoner.
The height of their debating skills boiled down to calling each other denigrating or derogatory names. What egalitarianism and erudition they displayed in this discourse.
Finally lets talk the use and mis-use of technology that was on display.
They assured their followers they had plenty of power and they were running on bio-diesel. Ah it must be good for them to pat their ego for using bio-diesel to save Gaia as they use their Made in China Mac laptops to protest with.
Their live video feed was amusing. It worked most of the time. But other times it would just drop out and see nothing. At one point they put up a banner saying 'obviously not live.' Another point the live video had odd sound effects, sounded like the protesters were talking to their alien overlords because it seems they had cross-talk interference. Their dismounting of the livestream camera took about ten minutes of discussion and then the camera guy had to tote the Mac laptop it was connected to so the video would go online.
After just about an hour of experiencing this I came to one conclusion. Count me out since all of you seem to be idiots.
