Day eight in my Ten Occupy Wall Street Heroes in Ten Days series is occupier, Mark Read. Read organized the technically amazing occupy “bat-signal” that appeared during the Occupy Wall Street Day of Action in New York on November 17th. The signal was projected onto the side of the Verizon building so that it could be visible to the OWS protestors from the Brooklyn Bridge. Here Read talked with Rachel Maddow in detail about where he came up with the idea and how he managed to pull it off.
