Yo, dawg, I heard you like occupations... so I pitched a tent inside your bank while you occupy the bank! Photo above taken by Aaron Muszalski, of Occupy protesters' tent, erected inside a Bank of America in San Francisco during a takeover-protest. There are 10 people inside the tent, and one protester, Kendra Yukiko, is live-tweeting her impending arrest.
Greggawatt posts this shot of someone putting the tent on eBay to raise funds, presumably to help with bail and/or to support Occupy SF. Here's the link, if you'd like to bid.
Here are more photos of the tent.
Aaron Muszalski tweets from the site, "SFPD just forcibly moved us away from the bank, saying it was for our safety and 'the glass might break.' Then they hit us with batons."
@SovernNation tweets, "The Occupation of #BofA is officially over. 95 arrests. Cops take down tent, collect signs, a conga drum, random debris."
@raindrift says, "sfpd is folding up the tent, but they'll *never* get it back in the bag."
@punkboyinsf, who has been livestreaming many of the Occupy events in the Bay Area, has a snapshot of the specific penal code with which these young folks have been charged.

We just got the Sport model of the EPIKGO hoverboard at my office. Besides being terribly chic, it’s apparently bulletproof.
Ok, it’s not just solar powered. It’s also an anti-theft, waterproof marvel that keeps my phone’s power bar from ever getting into the red.Sure the idea seems obvious now – tuck a gigantic solar powered battery pack into an exposed slot and turn the wearer into a walking energy harvester. Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]

You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has done outstanding work packing a fully capable desktop computer into a package the size of a deck cards—especially one that only costs $35. But if you already have a working laptop, why should you care? Oh, how much you have to learn. Besides operating well as a compact digital media hub, […]
