A Guide to the Occupy Wall Street API, Or Why the Nerdiest Way to Think About OWS Is So Useful - Alexis Madrigal - TechnologyThe most fascinating thing about Occupy Wall Street is the way that the protests have spread from Zuccotti Park to real and virtual spaces across the globe. Metastatic, the protests have an organizational coherence that's surprising for a movement with few actual leaders and almost no official institutions.
Somewhere today, a loose-knit group of activists who are having fun is dropkicking a rich, established organization so hard they are making heads spin.
"Occupations" have sprouted up throughout the world and the vast majority of them have created their own solutions for publishing content to the web. This diversity and decentralization of solutions should be celebrated and encouraged because it means there is no single point of failure within the occupy movement's communication ecosystem.
There's a need within the occupation movement to connect people doing similar work in different locations together so they can share best practices, coordinate activities and collaborate. One challenge is that different groups use different terms to describe their work so it's hard to equate one group with another. For example: the "Kitchen Working Group" at Occupy Wall Street performs the same tasks as the "Food Committee" of Occupy Philly.

Since then, while living in the park, the protesters have sponsored rallies and marches on most days — and the movement has thrived.
