    you want business cards, the way to do it is to photoshop them and order them from staples. my company does this all the time. Its much less expensive than a printing place and you dont have to pay shipping.

    The website is a great idea. Also, we can open a PayPal account and set up a link on the website to accept donations to help us with legal counsel and "marketing" to get the word out. Regarding stickers, I frequent the Meadowlands and one sure-fire way to get some attention is by magnets. I come out of football games and there's always magnets on my car looking for tickets, etc. If we go with magnets and place them on cars at Giants-Jets games, we certainly can get some eyes open and this is exactly the type of people we want backing us...hard working average people, just like us. Magnets could get expensive but I have seen it as an effective way to reach thousands at once.

    what you guys are doing is great, but research any ideas you have thoroughly...

    VENDING / SOLICITATION: Unauthorized soliciting or the collection of contributions, vending, distribution of flyers, or other materials is not permitted.

    http://www.newmeadowlandsstadium.com...r-policies.php

    I know it's done all the time, but if there happens to be one person, who supports this DOJ action, you might find yourselves looking for a different kind of legal representation...

    So if I'm reading the latest court docs that were just emailed to us correctly, the plaintiffs are now requesting that the judge offer any of the options EXCEPT option 6? This out of fear that the city would hire that class, and then not hire another due to economic factors? Just trying to see if I read that correctly is all.....

    correct, they support option 2 which would bump those toward 2500 out of the group for minorities. 4 5 7 are all the quota classes just different sizes

    The media however is a different story. I can see it now on NY1!!
    Long time reader, first time poster, and with regards to a video it would be a great idea considering and few friends and I put one together with a website to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Check it out at http://www.firstgiving.com/keys100 . My friend who ran the 100 mile ultramarathon raised tens of thousands of dollars and appeared on many Fox News shows including Glen Beck and a short special with the Today Show. He is also on the list in the low 1000s, and these are the types of people lives' this judge's decision is ruining. The video is on the left hand side or check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dg0RY7AqaTQ. Us candidates can get this to be big!

    Unreal, thanks for the post. I feel like I have no right to ever complain about anything again.

    Great example of a video and website. Any news on a meeting?

    Candidates:

    I spoke with my buddy in the film industry today.

    First off, he is really excited to help us. He has been a dear friend since high school, and has always wanted to do something to help us but never knew how. He works 80 hours a week, but he is willing to edit this on the weekends. Also, he has a film-trained friend coming to visit him for the next couple of weeks, and he will also be in on the project. They will bring all the lights/cameras/mikes.

    His idea is a 5 minute or less video consisting of interviews and a combination between still photos and video footage. The stills will be personal photos of the interviewees in addition to the run photos. The video will be similar - candidates in their home environments and footage from the run and upcoming bryant park meeting.

    We are looking at between a 2 week and 1 month process. Im hoping to get it down to 2 weeks.

    Our major time-eating issues will be collecting the raw materials (personal still photos and video), taking care of the legal elements and waivers, and scheduling the interviews. The editing will take place on a few sleepless weekend nights at my buddy's apartment.

    He is going to prep this work over the rest of the week and brainstorm, and Im supposed to call him on saturday. In the meantime, i want to get a list of guys who are ready and willing to share their story about the process and why they want on.

    As long as you can make the interviews, there should be no limit on how many guys/gals we can have involved. Of course, in a 5 minute video, we may not be able to use everyone, but im thinking of leaving those decisions up to a professional and unbiased editor who can craft something with the most impact in the most concise format.

    If you would like to either work on the video concepts or be interviewed, email me at 6019video@gmail.com. Ill make the official list from there.

    Lets make it happen.

    Also, we will probably be extending the ability to film to everyone directly...my buddy says that anybody who has an iphone 4 or a flip camera will be more than welcome to film whatever they want (i.e. their gym routine, or whatever, for example) and we can incorporate it if it fits into the film.

    I know you guys are talking about a lot of stuff and concerning yourself with the legality of some of it. Which is a good.

    At the risk of letting the anarchist in me start coming out, I say "Do what you gotta do."

    Im of the opinion that its easier to get forgiveness than permission.

    I dont foresee legal action being taken against the group. Youre not acting maliciously. Youve got no money. If you make a mistake here and there, consider it collateral damage and continue fighting the good fight.

    Another guy who works with ESPN films has jumped on and volunteered his time to help with the video.

    Pretty sweet, this is all falling together.
