    Actually, the perspective I quoted was from one friend of mine (though I've heard similar sentiments voiced by other Boomers). It's true, this one individual's notion of "big," in this connection, were probably rather vague.

      OWS has been generally visible for all of nine weeks; the antiwar movement had been building for five years by the time of those enormous mass demonstrations.

      Although I expect things to move much faster this time, partly because it feels like the country has been waiting for OWS for a long time, partly because of advances in communications technology, we're just getting started. This is going to get much, much bigger before it's over.
