    Nice work.

    A few ideas:
    * Can we combine the tags filters on the “Stories” and “OWS News” sections into one area?
    * Can we change “OWS News” to “The People’s NewsWire” or “Occupy.net NewsWire” and/or have a little “powered by occupy.net” on the bottom of each item.

    This is a great start for the site. Next stop – an awesome events page!?

      Combining tag filters doesn’t seem particularly logical to me. It also may prove difficult since the “internal” articles and newswire content may not have a consistent tag structure.

      Can we change “OWS News” to “The People’s NewsWire” or “Occupy.net NewsWire” and/or have a little “powered by occupy.net” on the bottom of each item.

      I don’t want to sacrifice usability for marketing. “Movement News” or “News from the Occupations” makes more sense. I wouldn’t mind having a single “powered by news.occupy.net” indicia for the section.

    Pea 9.3 — colors correspond to :unvisited and :visited links… yellow is unvisited (or thats how it’s been envisioned)

    Devin —
    We Jake suggested discussed OWS News is becoming “Movement News”
    Though I can see “The People’s Newswire” being nice, still smeting more descriptive than pluggy.
    You know I love occupy.net and the newswire specifically but maybe this isn’t the place to plug services?

      OK. That makes sense.

      OWS News is becoming “Movement News”

      This is OK. However, I prefer something closer to “News From The Occupations”. IMO, on its own, “Movement” doesn’t make much sense. Worse, movement has some less savory connotations…
