Here is another thing about OWS.
Anybody noticed when Keith to Thom interview them there are some ums? Yes it's bothersome, but this is not fully packaged and sterile. These are actual people without years of media training.

2. Yup.
"Occupy Wall Street isn't slick. It isn't focus-grouped. It isn't something professional activists would doAs the authors of the Cluetrain Manifesto wrote more than a decade ago, we instinctively know the difference between a human voice and a corporate voice. I know it may sound strange to say this, but could the reason so many progressive social change projects fail to connect with ordinary people and move them to action be because they seem too corporate in style? Think of all those hand-scrawled signs on scraps of cardboard vs. a thousand professionally printed signs from a union shop--which is more authentic?"
