For those of you wondering about it, yes, we will be doing our Speaker's Corner from the Occupy Wall Street protest once again this Monday.
If you are unfamiliar with it, the CNBC Speaker's Corner is essentially a virtual podium where we invite folks down at the protest to speak their peace about who they are and what they want. We stream their comments live on our site.
It's a neat example of the kind of engagement you can drive with Internet journalism. In the olden days you'd send a reporter down there to do some interviews and report back on the general sentiment of the crowd. (Hey, we STILL do that, don't we?). This allows our readers to see the sentiment in the raw, so to speak.
The feed is pretty engaging and many have a poignant and relevant points of view. Even if you don't agree, it's worth taking a gander. You can take a look at some of the hits from last week's Speaker's Corner here.
So Mondays will likely be Speaker's Corner day as long as the Occupy Wall Street movement is going strong and weather/other events permit . We hope you enjoy.
