Flow for Content, Sources
* Where does the content come from?  There are good ideas but who will be there everyday to write and curate the content.
* Things will only be able to move forward if people bottomline projects.
* The process for the site will be open so don’t complain, get involved.
<action item: how much content do we need to be creating?>
<action item: create an editorial team>
<action item: content flow, color coding and working group blogs>
* Arts and culture are doing interesting stuff with thier site.  So is Occupy Museums.
* It would be very helpful to have a media map – categories.?
* Groups using subblogs is great but we need a core team interested in working solely on the site.
* People who blog on occupywallstnyc have a tweet boat that coudl help us.
* One group of people create tweets and another curate/edit it.  {we need a process for review}
* It’s going to take a lot of time to curate all this content.
* On Tidal when we curate we think about the topics that need to go in first then ask people to write around the prompt: edit and then publish. {we need publishing guidelines: what an editor can and can’t do.}
* We need to develop stories deliberately – not just let curated items coming up.
* We should make a list of people who want to participate in the editorial/curatorial team.
