Hi folks! Check out our biggest ever edition of Open Media Boston! As 
you'll read in our editorial, we massively amped up our operation to put 
out roughly 4 times our normal weekly output - doubling our staff and 
audience in the process. Why? Because the new #OccupyBoston - part of 
the fast-growing #OccupyWallStreet process - has exploded out of the 
gate and offers the best hope for a progressive revival in this country 
than we've seen in a long time. If you haven't made it down to the OB 
Dewey Square encampment, by all means do. More than likely you'll see 
one of our new OMB Special Events Unit reporters on the scene, bring you 
the latest news on #OccupyBoston actions. We're still covering our 
normal beats too; so keep sending those press releases, and - as ever - 
we always encourage folks to send in op-ed on issues they're passionate 
about. More to come. Enjoy!
