On The Livestream Ended: How I Got Off My Computer And Onto The Street At Occupy Oakland

This piece is superb. Words fail me.

I'm less hesitant than the author--I was at the first general assembly of Occupy Boston after it took Dewey Square on Sep 30--but otherwise my experience of it is uncannily similar to the one expressed so eloquently here. That our political lives have become disembodied and abstract explodes undeniably into awareness as soon as one experiences how real an Occupy is.
