  • This is the central image of OWS and common for all protests….which is why I thought to put it in the center…
  • The concept starts with this handheld deviceIt’s like a hand-held walkie-talkie that has a mechanically rechargeable battery. It’s cheap to make, requires very few materials, and everyone gets one.
  • The “I’m here!” button is pressed each day, and it logs the occupier’s GPS location and sends that signal to the Occupy Together website. This helps them keep an accurate record of exactly how many people are participating.
  • The “I agree” button is pressed each time a speaker nearby says something that the user of this particular device agrees with. How does it know what’s being said? I’ll get to that.
  • The next part of the concept is this thing. This is a microphone that one person during a particular event speaks into. It is also integrated with GPS technology. When a speaker speaks into the microphone, the walkie talkies that are nearby, say within 300 ft., hear what that speaker is saying.
  • While speaking, the speaker will make all kinds of statements, some of them will be rambling sentences, some of them will be discrete and concrete statements that the audience can latch onto (or reject). Each time the speaker makes such a discrete statement, he or she holds down this button. Those who are close enough to receive the message in their walkie talkies can choose to agree with the particular statement that is being said. If they don’t agree, they just don’t do anything.
  • The previous slides lead up to here. On this page, don’t forget to talk about how they don’t really have leaders, and they’re trying to be completely democratic about this, so this would also serve as a good way to judge the collective voice of the occupiers. “Being that OWS is a collective leadership initiative they could utilize a system that allows each individual to see...”
  • Then we can talk about this slide and the next few slides as other examples of things we could do with the numbers.
  • We didn’t really try to tackle how one would know that the speaker is making a discrete statement. It could be as simple as a beep at the start and end of a particular statement. We didn’t really decide.
