TELECONFERENCING FOR GA MULTICAST
We think exposing the GA proceedings/process to the widest possible audience is a critical strategic objective: demonstrating the possibility of direct mass democracy is one of this movement's unique accomplishments.
We note with concern that most of the discussion about enabling this focuses on Web streaming, which we believe has some distinct disadvantages.

I would like to find out what people think are the most important political ideas we can contribute to the movement. In the Facebook era, we seem to be faced with the difficult conundrum of activists using tools fundamentally opposed to their goals. For me, the best thing we could do as part of the Occupy Movement is make people aware that technological choices reflect political choices as well.
If we were to construct a proposal for GA's across the country/world regarding techno-politics, what would it include?
