Hackmeet 2011, a West Coast hackmeeting for activists, hackers, artists, and community members, is taking place on October 15-16 at Noisebridge in San Francisco. Hear report backs from tech activists from Occupy Oakland and Occupy San Francisco, speaking on the logistical and technical issues unique to the occupations. (17 minutes)
Occupy Oakland has been cooperative and without incident from City officials, according to this report, with relatively large numbers occupying and attending General Assemblies and evening cultural events. A march and rally form jobs and justice was happening in Oakland at this time.

San Franciscans were ready to take to the streets again in a march and rally, and then to move their sleeping camp at the time of the report. In both camps, bike-powered generators are used to provide necessary energy for the live streams and other energy needs.
