Technology Tent, #occupylsx
I am in London this weekend for the Mozilla Festival, so I decided to visit Occupy London to see how they were using media.
When I arrived, most people were watching a film. I did get a chance to visit the tech tent, where people were mostly relaxing after a long day.
At present, the main concerns of the people I spoke with in Tech are internal decisionmaking and liason with other occupations over long-term strategy. In London, as in other Occupy groups, plans to prepare for the winter are focused on goals beyond just survival. People I spoke with want to use that time to grow and refine the movement. Along those lines, Occupy London just started a Homeless tent and Welfare working group.
