I'm working from the Occupy Wall Street protest today.

My first impression: there's a lot of cameras. This must be one if the most heavily photographed protests ever.

Satellite trucks from all the networks are set up along the outskirts of the park. From where I'm sitting I can see at least five television crews filming.

There's free wireless in Zucotti park, where the protest is more or less permanently encamped. But it is so jammed that it's impossible to use to actually access the Internet. I'm typing this out on my phone.

It certainly is a happy occupation. The protesters might be angry at Wall Street but they are having a good time.
