Hey all, I thought of a cool, pretty easy culture jamming project for anyone with a few spare minutes.

In light of Facebook's recent IPO, and as a general attention grabber, Occupiers should post pictures of tents on their facebook profiles. If we can get enough people to do this that it gets mass attention, I think it'd be a nice little call to arms, and display of our power in numbers.

I created a picture for it that I posted on my profile, which anyone is welcome to use:

or make your own. I encourage you to do this, and tell like-minded friends to do the same. It certainly can't hurt, and it'd only take a few minutes. Lets take back the internet, kids.

I don't think Facebook is inherently bad, @JadedCitizen. Its a social communication tool. Facebook and Twitter were essential for the Arab Spring, and for Occupy in general. It IS a gigantic corporation, but it's success is dependent on people communicating with each other, which is a lot less evil than the ones that are dependent on people buying worthless shit. Facebook can be a valuable thing, but only if we use it to communicate cool messages.
