OccupyWallStreet.net – Content Meeting
- Scope of site is for the New York City General Assembly Occupation
- Big red “donate” button
- Concern that there might be backlash from people without computers
- It is a website which requires internet access
- People submit, and a curator reviews, and a copy editor checks it for spelling and facts, and then a content manager puts it on to the site
- Concern: Issues may come up regarding possible turf issues… who gets to be content manager, fact checker, etc
- Will test and modify as needed.
- Shawn wants to get deeper into this, play the roles in the launch content phase, and see how it plays out
- CQ: How do we decide what does and doesn’t go up on the site?

- Content team can condense on moving forward with a story
(lots of people leave)
