Included in this group are four regular contributors to the independent news website Indybay.org. An Indybay release called this a "full frontal assault against independent media in Santa Cruz. [...] District Attorney Lee apparently believes it is his duty to dictate how events such as the occupation of the vacant bank at 75 River Street should be reported on by the media, and if he does not approve of the coverage, then journalists risk the DA bringing charges against them."

Self-Directed Learning: An Inner-City Perspective By Tiffany Mikell While touring for his book, Dale Stephens stopped by the Chicago area to participate in a panel discussion on taking control of your education by following your passion. The event was held in a high school auditorium and I had the pleasure of being in the audience that evening. The panel shared inspiring stories of challenging the educational status quo. When Dale shared his unschooled story, a dad in the crowd asked a question that challenged the practicality of Dale’s method of acquiring education.
