Some are calling the occupy wall street protests, the arab spring. There were almost 800 people arrested last weekend. Russel Simmons showed up for yoga class, Deepak Chopra came for prayer, Michael Franti came for music. It's generating a nationwide conversation, so lets talk!

Here's a starting place:

    Here a very interesting perspective on the self-organizing meme of #OWS. Read the comments, too.

    Adam, I talked to Rebecca Cornwall at Central Market this morning. Their schedule is pretty full. She has some Saturday night dates (Oct 15th, 22nd, 29th. Do you think our group would give up their Saturday nights? I could.

    Kenan, I agree. I'm going tomorrow morning at 8:30am to Market Street Square in downtown to document/photograph it.

    I'd love to see a good turn-out for this meeting as it is as current of an event as you can ask for and has the power directly impact us all.

    I am checking availabilities at Central Market Community rooms (Westheimer near Stella Link/Westlyn. They have private rooms for about 20 people and an LCD video monitor and free Wifi. Of couse, drinks and food below in the store.
    I think this topic would be great if we could all really put some effort into an integral perspective on #OWS.
