Some might see a crass corporate attempt to latch onto a movement that fits well with the company’s branding. We see a progressive company showing its pre-corporate roots. (via Percolate)
Why don’t these companies set up a job fair at each one of the Occupy sites?
As the #OccupyWallStreet movement gains momentum in more locations—and as protesters are arrested by the hundreds—Fast Company speaks with one of the movement’s architects.
“It’s not the arrests that convinced me that “Occupy Wall Street” was worth covering seriously. Nor was it their press strategy, which largely consisted of tweeting journalists to cover a small protest that couldn’t say what, exactly, it hoped to achieve. It was a Tumblr called, “We Are The 99 Percent,” and all it’s doing is posting grainy pictures of people holding handwritten signs telling their stories, one after the other.”
Nice bit from Ezra Klein on a Tumblr you should be following.
