    I think Anon deserves some credit. Many of us knew nothing about it, but they did a great job of getting the word out. I thought the whole thing was their invention for the longest time.

    God that article is so dismissive. They make it sound like the Adbusters guy is responsible for the whole movement. He or they may have given the movement a great name with “Occupy”, but other than that, I say this movement is a continuation of the Arab Spring and is far greater than any one person or organization.

    “It’s very tl;dr,”

    That’s the best concise description of the New Yorker I’ve ever heard.

  4. Okay, I just went to Urban Dictionary to find out tl;dr means, but you know what?  The explanation was really long and convoluted, and I had like three other exciting things happening on my browser at the time.  So I guess I’ll never know.

  5. Irony or Mastery? Anti-market Adbusters named Occupy Wall Street and a CATCH PHRASE became the 1st massively anti-market marketing campaign.
