As part of TIME Magazine's special issue on TIME's Person of the Year 2011: The Protester , they produced this video centering on how an activist/journalist's (Tim Poole) live video stream from New York City's Zuccotti Park garnered mainstream attention and helped galvanize a movement.  Tim has gone beyond Zuccotti and has traveled up and down the east coast and to California in the last several weeks to cover the other Occupy protests and to help others set up similar livestreams.

For the past two months, I have stayed up into the wee hours of the morning, watching his Ustream broadcasts and chatting with Tim, as well as with others who have begun to emulate his style of instant, raw documentation. I have tweeted out and shared those broadcasts on many occasions, so others may bear witness without the filter of the mainstream media.

As long known by those in the Occupy Movement and those who follow it: This Movement Will Not be Televised.  Therefore, we have come to rely on tech savy individuals such as Tim Poole, who are breaking new ground in the growing phenomena of online media.
