The Gothamist found Jeff Mangum on the streets of lower Manhattan playing for #OcuppyWallSteetNY protesters on Tuesday night (October 4 - Day 18) - globalrevolution's LiveStream (the 'Occupy' movement's TV channel) had him hooked to the planet.  

The next day was the student walk-out, and the day the Unions came out. The march attracted 50,000 people.

The next day Thursday, the number of 'Ocuppy' Cities listed on "Occupy Together" (the global site) jumped from 390 to 750. It's up to 837 at this posting.
