TOL will be #LiveAndDirect from tonight’s #OccupyOakland’s #FTP march ~8:15pm PST #OCAM #OO #SunshineBloc http://www.ustream.tv/channel/oaktownlive

The epic rain of the last few days seems to be backing off. Unfortunately, the stabilizer Pirate ordered arrived without an essential part, and the company we ordered it from hasn’t called back like they said they would. Gotta write a “shocked, appalled, and dismayed” email. So Pirate’s Mighty Bamboo Pole of Transparency is still on duty.

Happy St Patrick’s Day, everyone.

Live video feeds have been a critical part of Occupy — but now, some activists argue that they’re a threat to the movement.

Thu M8 10:00am TOL will be #LiveAndDirect @ #OO’s press conf re: stay-away orders against Occupiers. #StayawayClub http://Ustream.tv/channel/Oaktownlive

NOTE: Social Stream will be disabled during this broadcast. Lexica will be at the jobby-job Thursday, leaving the stream w/out moderator (and Pirate w/out adult supervision).

Without a mod to enact the team’s social stream policies (No personal attacks/no d0xing/no relaying police scanner info), our choice is to turn the S2 off rather than leave it unmoderated.

The ACLU on the stay-away orders.

While it’s possible Pirate may go L&D before the 10am presser, he expects to definitely be live for that.

Note at ~14:14, Shawn Polly of Vallejo, CA talks about Samsons Unit, the men’s sober-living space he set up in the house he’s been renting. The house is now owned by Fannie Mae, and they are not renewing ANY leases. If you can’t buy the house, out you go.

Occupy Fannie Mae in Vallejo, anyone?
