TCMN's Syed Hussan meets the scrum, handles journos nicely.

I’ve been at the AMC all day – arriving just before the press conference at 10 this morning. You can read my story on the media scrum here. The mainstream media never cease to amaze me with their myopia and single-minded focus on sensationalism. Goddessforbid we talk about some issues. It really does get boring.

Right now, most folks are out covering the Allen Gardens autonomous action (All out in defense of the rights of all), where the riot cops arrived two hours ahead of the start time. I’m holding down the fort at reception while some others are getting the server up and running, figuring out software use and interoperability and shit. Good times.

Also, the first daily edition of The Spoke, discussed with some hesitation at last night’s story meeting, hit the streets this a.m., in an awesome instance of collaboration and sheer will. Grab the pdf here. And like everyone’s been saying all day today: See you in the street!
