Attendence: Jeffrey, Silviano, Chris B, Robert, Big Chris
- Tables for OccTwnSqr on 26.Feb (Sunday)
- Report back from Silivano (Sil) on the functionality of the Indiginatos of the Occupy encampments in Barcelona of 2011. This opens a larger discussion of the similarities of functionality, inclusion, enforcement, etc. between encampments, working groups, projects. Key issues identified:
- The development of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) encampment, bread down of communal understanding.
- WGs, Communities, projects that succeed have some sense of barrier-of-entry, or inclusive/exclusive (ie. Tulsa Symphony – must produce music, Tech Ops – must have tech skills, WWOOF – must work to sustain). Groups, communities that have difficulty do not have a core purpose, barrier-of-entry or tother cohesive mechanism (ie. Zuccotti park, Housing, GA).
