Group Discussion of Seperation of two Groups from Info Hub into: ComHub & Occupy Information
Culture Conflict between nature & functions of groups
Both Doing excellent work but with membership growth & community participation makes sense to splt
Future Metro Pass & Budget Goals would conflict
Macro & Micro division:
Movement & Park, Top Down vs Bottom Up model of information handling
Information WG (Occupy Info) facilitates & promotes NYCGA working group information
ComHub WG cultivates & organizes via information practices
Two groups will still function as sister groups but 100% independent
