For now, copy/paste is clearly the best tool to begin assimilating information.
- Facebook page: Occupy Los Angeles
-- Lots of people have posted on there about priorities, values, and even sometimes statistics.
-- Lets scroll through and begin taking what resonates and forming different categories and groupings to reflect what people express.
- Website Forum
-- Encourage people to contribute
-- Website is creating an FAQ, towards which they have asked us to contribute our data.
- Friends/Family/University students
-- Ask for facts, figures, credible sources - We need to begin showing the masses that we are educated regarding the state of the country/globe and not just complaining about personal problems.
- For now, organize anyway you feel most comfortable. We will discuss our findings in person. Also, make it a point to tell others to contribute information - Our primary job should be to assimilate and synthesize, not necessarily study every little aspect.
I suggest we get together Saturday after everything is set-up. I will make an announcement to the group in the afternoon.
I understand that the task before us seems quite overwhelming, but lets acknowledge 100% of the responsibility and 0% of the pressure. More will be accomplished after we begin the Occupation, because many people will be spending lots of time together, making it easier to discover our mutual interests and recruit more volunteers.
