Bringing BuyMyShitPile.com to Meat Space
BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, September 25 2008
How does a protest go from online to off? Andrew Boyd -- activist, street theater veteran, and the driving force behind Billionaires for Bush -- was inspired by the launch of the website BuyMyShitpile.com to organize a festive anti-Wall Street bailout rally that ended up drawing hundreds of protesters to Bowling Green Park on Manhattan's southern tip this afternoon. I caught up with Andrew after the rally to ask how an idea that spread quickly like wildfire online brought people into the streets of New York City. Video after the jump.
