Forum Post: How can we help?

I (and most of my friends) are students. Therefore, we are not (easily) able to make it out to the occupy protests. Most of us are computer scientists and visual artists - what can we do to help? What can we do to be heard?

I can not make the actual protest either so I looked into a way for all of us to show where we stand

please pass this idea along and buy stickers they are at my cost

support 99% and occupy wall street all over

simple yet powerful action

99% auto sticker at cost

50 cents goes to OWS

take it on the road

I would like to create a 3D graphic for submission to the Board of Occupy. This graphic represents Fundamental Socioeconomic Principles that our movement needs to understand visually, as many as visual learners.

The graphic begins as a Circle and can be found at AmericansElect.org under their "Colors" tab. However, the Circle in their example has only 9 Socioeconomic Sectors corresponding to the sectors which the Board of AmericansElect thinks are of interest to voters, such as the economy, healthcare, etc. On the other hand, our Centrist Circle (of Liberty & Justice For All) has 12 Socioeconomic Sectors (not 9) which are directly proportional to all of today's Economic Activity (or Gross Domestic Product), and thus are of equal interest to all our Diversified Bank Owner-Voters, regardless of their 48 Occupations or 24 Generations, because they will earn substantial Interest Income as Bank Owner-Voters from all 12 Socioeconomic Sectors, as follows: Wholesale, Vehicles, Services, Education, Retail, Housing, Commodities, Technology, Manufacturing, Insurance, Justice, and Banking. Furthermore, our Centrist Circle becomes ever more complex -- or divided into pie pieces and layered like a cake -- as we dive ever deeper into the full breath and depth of our 48 Tactical Investment Procedures, which thus require that we divide the above Centrist Circle into our 48 Business Investment Groups (or pie pieces), and related 24 Generational Investment Groups (or layers of cake). Those 24 Generational Investment Groups correspond to today's 24 Generations (or your age plus and minus 1.5 years). Furthermore, this 24-layered by 48-pieced cake when reconfigured graphically for the differences in Wealth & Income between our 24 Generational Investment Groups, becomes a Triangle Cone Cake, with our 8 Young Investment Groups (having the least Wealth & Income as the youngest) being at the tip (or bottom) of our Triangle Cone Cake, our 8 Middle Investment Groups (having more Wealth & Income as a result of being older) being at the wider middle part of our Triangle Cone Cake, and our 8 Old Investment Groups (having the most Wealth & Income as the oldest) being at the widest top part of our Triangle Cone Cake. At this point, the graphic starts to become so more much complex internally (click-wise), and yet ever more beautiful in terms of the precision of its ever deeper functionality as 48 Tactical Investment Procedures, that you need a really good computer programmer to completely show the full elegance of those 48 Tactical Investment Procedures in 3D. I'm a Computer Programmer, but programming this graphic isn't a priority for me because I have it in my head and I have other priorities, in examining the graphic itself as a Socioeconomic Analyst, which take precedence in importance at this time (for me), but I think you get the picture so far, right? Know any programmers who'd like to code this graphic for submission to the Board of Occupy as a Home Page Interactive Graphic similar to "Colors" tab at AmericansElect.org?

For more info on the Strategically Weighted Policies, Organizational Operating Structures, and Tactical Investment Procedures that relate to this interactive graphic go to: http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/StrategicInternationalSystems/ and please join if your interested in collaborating on this interactive graphic.

Ask ordinary citizens to write an email "DAILY" to their Senators and Representatives stating that they support the OWS movement and the Senators and Representatives should explicitly say where they stand on this issue. A simple Yes or No, no spin , no long explanations, no lessons in history and certainly no BS of haw they are helping American People.

keep the message flowing. Only just over 50% of Americans have heard about the movement. Court right wingers. We need more right wing views. Stage a local occupy/protest. You dont have to run it full time. But it puts the word out and makes people aware. Even if you spend a few hours on the weekend doing it is a help.

Ps: I court people all the time on public inet boards.

thats all i can think of off the top of my head atm.
