Who are we: The mobile Info Network, a newly formed Affinity Group created to have a physical presence to gather and share OWS information in any occupied space.
What will we do: Organize people with a written process to provide access to laptops and internet in Zuccotti Park and Charlotte’s Place, with plans for eventually being wherever occupiers are located.
Why this needs to be done: Right now the biggest concern being voiced by occupiers is a lack of information and organization. The M.I.N. will directly address this concern
Costs: We are asking for a one-time start up amount of $2,000. This money will be used to purchase 10 laptops at a target price of $150-$200 per laptop, and a pre-paid mobile hotspot. The purchase process will be completely transparent and any extra money not spent on the pre-mentioned will be returned to the OWS general fund.
-We are in the process of starting a KickStarter fundraiser for the purchase of more equipment, re-occurring costs and future needs.
– All laptop info will be encrypted to guarantee privacy.
-We will have strict, written access and supervision requirements to safeguard equipment
