Occupy.net Newswire aggregates content from feeds relevant to the #occupy movement and provides features that enable project team members collaboratively browse, tag and organize content items, create channels, and output their own feeds.
Our objective is to provide a newswire-style tool to 'power users' who will use it to distribute critical information to the the #occupy movement. Our ultimate goal is to collect, tag and make accessible every content item from every occupation and general assembly in the world.
Also, Channels can be created for individual occupations, so they can cherry pick from the network of #occupy news to provide streams that are relevant and valuable to them. Each channel results in an RSS feed that can then be pulled directly by users with RSS readers, or embedded by web admins in the context of local sites. Numerous RSS feed widgets and systems exist to integrate with CRM systems and web technologies.
