“Archie’s Final Project”, directed by David Lee Miller, is about a teenage boy (played by Disney’s Gabriel Sunday) who’s grown up fully immersed in digital culture. But despite his material and social advantages, he’s depressed, and decides to create one last video project, ending in his own suicide.
Across the country, teens who are sympathetic to the main character of the film, have experienced or have friends who have experienced suicidal thoughts, or have suffered from bullying, have been declaring, “I’m an Archie”.
Well, Archie is now joining the #occupy movement… Watch the video just uploaded.
Although they had a hand in starting the Occupy Wall Street protest, the hacktivist collective Anonymous has been pretty quiet since it started. No longer: Anonymous claims they just hacked a ton of police sites and leaked usernames and passwords.
The biggest target of today’s hack was the International Association of Chiefs of Police, whose website is still down as of this writing. It’s auspicious timing, as the IACP is holding its annual meeting in Chicago.
A press release by Anonymous said that the hack was timed to the IACP meeting as part of a “Day of Action Against Police Brutality.”
Here recently in Albuquerque, quite a bit of problems have erupted over the term “Occupy.” Last week, there was a lot of talk of changing the name to “Occupy Wall Street Liberate Albuquerque.” Many people were in favor of this change. Then, on Sunday, a rather rogue move was made – without proper announcement to all on the “Official” Facebook Page – many attending the General Assembly made a sneak attack and came to a consensus to change the name to “(Un)Occupy Albuquerque”. If I had been aware of this, I would have made it to General Assembly and blocked this move.
