Recently, in solidarity with OWS, I met up with associates in Blue Mars Lite to find and occupy Wall Street virtually. The event was organized by my friends Jeremy O. Turner and Jacquelene Drinkall.

Blue Mars Lite uses Google Street View as its interface. So your avatar can walk around the streets of the world. The group met up at a NYC landmark and then started trying to find our way to Wall Street. There was so much traffic, though, that things got confusing and we were lost for a little while.

Luckily we found the Wall Street bus! We occupied that for awhile on the way.
Blue Mars Lite works for both Mac and PC and according to the Blue Mars webpage it is possible to take a URL from Google Street View, plug it into the program and it places your avatar right there. I haven’t been able to get that to work yet but will keep trying to sort it out. Good to know for next time.
