We are moving: OccupyIcon

We have a new name;


occupy: transitive verb
  1. to engage the attention or energies of
a : to take or hold possession or control of <enemy troops occupied the ridge>
b : to fill or perform the functions of (an office or position)
c: to reside in as an owner or tenant
icon: noun
  1. a usually pictorial representation : image
  2. [Late Greek eikōn, from Greek] : a conventional religious image typically painted on a small wooden panel and used in the devotions of Eastern Christians
  3. an object of uncritical devotion : idol
  4. emblem, symbol  the house became an icon of 1960’s residential architecture — Paul Goldberger
  5. a : a sign (as a word or graphic symbol) whose form suggests its meaning
              b : a graphic symbol on a computer display screen that usually suggests the type of object represented or the purpose of an available function
We chose this naming convention to alleviate any confusion between us and the Grand Rapids Michigan occupy movement. We also admit to some subtle tongue-in-cheek . . . cheekiness.
The existing content on this site will be archived  by hand due to the  incompatabe export/import between the two blog platforms.  In the meantime, the new site is taking shape.
You can take a peek under the shiny paper here: occupyicon.blogspot.com.
There is also an exhaustive magazine format publishing a morning and evening edition with 40 journalists, photographers and videographers publishing an astounding 100 or more content items per day.
OccupyIcons magazine went live yesterday, December 11, 2011.
This site will be vacated by January 1, 2011.
