Bird’s Eye: “The revolution will not be televised,” sang Gil Scott-Heron, 40 years ago. But it will be photographed, tweeted, twittered, and streamed. You can watch OWS in real time (or any of 30 other occupations). An artist draws the faces she sees as OWS goes into its 29th day. And In Focus has a stunning photo collection of the occupy movements across the world.

I live half a block from Liberty Park, the homebase and nerve center of the Occupy Wall Street movement. I’ve been going down almost every day I’ve been in town to drop off books, tarps, and blankets for the protesters. While the media caricatures the protesters as a group of ne’er do well hippies, its actually hundreds of people of all ages, colors and walks of life.
