Occupy Gets an App


by Shay Sokol

Since the beginning of their stint in Duncan Plaza, the Occupiers of New Orleans have quarrelled about the "people's microphone." The low-tech amplification device, which was created by Occupy Wall Street to comply with laws that ban actual amplification devices, requires the group to repeat the words of the person speaker before them. Soon, however, they might just be able to whip out their smartphones. According to TalkingPointsMemo.com, programming developers are collaborating to create an app to help protestors hear each other's grievances.
