The February issue of Harper's includes an article titled "Some Assembly Required" by Brooklyn-based writer Nathan Schneider. The piece examines the rise of Occupy Wall Street.
And Bob Arihood makes a brief appearance early on in the article, where Schneider describes the scene last Aug. 13 during a General Assembly meeting in Tompkins Square Park. As you may recall, some of the attendees requested a ban on photographs... and how Bob explained "the nature of public space."
Bob wrote about the episode here at Neither More Nor Less. The post attracted many comments.
And the Harper's piece reminded me that Bob died just as Occupy was really just getting started.
The Harper's article is online, though you must be a subscriber to access it.
Thanks to Pluto for letting me know about the article.
