One protester looking to address digital disparities is Dan Schneider, an Emerson senior who launched the Occupy Boston Globe. Similar to Zuccotti's Occupied Wall Street Journal, he says the newspaper will present a balanced voice that reflects experiences of activists in Dewey Square and elsewhere.Next week Schneider will use more than $8000 that he raised on Kickstarter to distribute copies of his Globe around camp and throughout the city — a move that might seem backward for group that's often hailed as "Web-savvy" and "nu-media literate." But according to those who have weathered the storm so far, their success moving forward depends on the extent to which the whole movement stays informed.
"For a long time, we were saying that there weren't enough people of color, or enough LGBTQ people," says Mazen. "But overall we're also working with people who barely text, let alone vote on a Wiki. If we really want to represent the 99 percent, we have to think about how we can disseminate through low-tech means. It's like a lot of other things: we're working on it, but we just haven't gotten there yet."
