That said, a few relevant notes from right now:
If you can't get to anti-SOPA/anti-internet-censorship website http://americancensorship.org, try http://americancensorship.heroku.com/ instead. The former is working for me on AT&T but not Comcast; the latter is working on Comcast. I am really hoping this is a technical issue with domain name server propagation. This is reasonable, as the DNS records were updated on Tuesday, according to whois.
If you don't know what SOPA is, catch the fuck up.
Separately, the NYPD's beatdowns of journalists include beatdowns of NYPD-credentialed journalists. They've also admitted arrested people for the apparent crime of covering the protests. Berkeley PD, by contrast, prefer beating down former US Poet Laureates.
My nightmare scenario is that OWS gets declared a terrorist organisation. This can be done by executive decision and cannot be appealed. Then anyone associated with it or who has provided "material support" for it can be arbitrarily arrested, imprisoned forever, or even executed without evidence or trial, also all by executive decision. I do not think this is likely. But it is possible, which is an obscenity.
I hope you guys have finally realised I wasn't ever joking about the US police state.
