I've updated my Amazon Wish List to include some gear that would come in handy for self-preservation, video coverage of events, etc. Nothing I can't get by without if necessary, but it's stuff I'd like to have.
Live blogging/podcasting is probably just not going to be feasible, but I'll try to get as much worthwhile material up as soon as possible after the fact (assuming none of the various more dire possible outcomes, e.g. jail, hospital, morgue ...).
My guess is that unless the university either folds or gets ordered by a court to provide the requested rental venue, things will go down outdoors on Turlington Plaza. But that guess could be wrong. I'll be watching for more info as Der Tag approaches.
