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

Thanks for this wonderful post. Probably, after 85 comments, you're not reading every single one any more, but still I'm compelled to say thank you. I'm an ardent OWS supporter. I've not slept in a park, but I have written extensively about the movement on my blog, and spent a lot of time in Zuccotti park till camp was evicted. I'm a fairly normal, moderate person. For example, even after weeks of watching and sharing videos of police violence, I didn't fully understand the extent of it till I myself was beat (albeit briefly) in a skirmish the night of the eviction. Your post is beautifully written, articulate, thoughtful, and most importantly, speaks to the majority who kinda-sorta like the movement and kinda-sorta relate but think they're somehow not a part of it. I teared up at the end, and as I writer, I know that's pretty much one of the best compliments you can give another writer. Good job! Peace.
