OccupyWallStreet: RD goes to a protest march

Today’s the big one.  Check out the details of the march from Foley Square to the Financial district here:

OccupyWallSt.org

I’m going as a passive pedestrian, you know, just checkin’ things out, minding my own business, in my labcoat and goggles.  I mean, I don’t speak for the hundreds of thousands of R&D professionals who have been affected by the crazy machinations of the bonus class or anything.  That’s really the job of our professional organizations.  Oh, wait!  We don’t really have any, or, should I say, we don’t have any who are willing to actually stick up for us.

{{sigh}}

Anyways, I’m taking the iPad, which means I will be able to post live on 3G.  But don’t count on perfectly edited posts because the keyboard and WordPress app don’t really lend themselves to that kind of thing.  I’ll try to take pics and upload them too.

Ok, gotta go catch a train.  Talk to you from Gotham…

  1. !!! I can’t wait to hear how it goes! Can you take photos too?

  2. Watch out Wall Street! Here comes the Confluence!

  3. Picture of you in lab coat and goggles or it didn’t happen. 🙂

  4. Don’t get arrested. It’s never as much fun as it seems.

    • Yeah, that wouldn’t work for me. I have to be home to make dinner for the adolescent creature that has taken up residence in my house.

  5. Just missed the train at Somerville. Drove to Newark. I’m on the PATH, not that the authorities don’t already know that.
    😉

  6. RD, please see if you can find Laura Flanders. She’s doing some great interviews in Liberty Park, I think. I would love to see her interview you. My daughter just got her PhD in biomedical research, is first author on an important paper on HIV and contributing author on several others, and is discovering there are NO jobs out there for her and that post-doc fellowships…if you can find one in her research area…pay $38K. Aargh! When asked what she plans to do next, she quips, “Tend bar.” She says the US is still #1 in research. But I believe that’s due to inertia and that this will change very quickly if this country doesn’t wake up very soon.

    • I hear you. I’ll see if I can find her. Blackout in a minute as we enter the tunnel. See ya in NYC

  7. I’m in zuccotti park. I have my lab coat AND goggles on. There is a guy with a neon orange sign sitting behind me. I hate to break it to him that I used to work for one of those corporations he despises. That’s one of the problems with a movement like this. People are so angry they tend to lash out indiscriminately and offend the people who should be their allies.
    Oh well, the weather is nice. I’m sitting next to a bunch of chrysanthemums. The park is surprisingly clean when you consider how many people have been living here. It smells better than the subway.
    Will try to get a pic of me in my attire for dandy tiger.

  8. can’t wait for the pics 🙂
