'Dan Nowman: One of the topics that comes up a lot is Occupy 2.0. What is Occupy 2.0 and beyond to you?

David DeGraw: I hear the term Occupy 2.0 all of the time and to different people that means different things. In Occupy 2.0, I’m not talking about any particular thing specifically, but in general just like the overall movement, I see this winter time period going into spring as a coordination time, an organizing time on a national level hopefully building internationally as well. There’s no doubt that we’ll stay decentralized, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have better coordination nationally or even internationally and better organizations overall. It’s really just coordinating all of the different occupy camps and locations. What I try to focus on now other than getting money out of politics is working with people who are trying to organize on a national level in a way that allows people to want to work on the same issues to communicate and coordinate because right now that’s really not happening to a significant level."
