So now we have an "apples to apples" metric to measure the people participation in any type of feet on the street event:   People Power Hours (PPH).   (See Mom and Dad, my MBA is not going to waste.)

Here's a rough estimate of Occupy Wall Streets participation in People Power Hours.   I'm going to be conservative about all the variables.   Here's the method example for September 17 8:00 a.m. September 18:

Day 1: 

10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. PM Bowling Green: 2,000 x 7 hrs. = 14,000 PPH

5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. Zuccotti Park Meeting: 1,000 x 5 hrs. = 5,000 PPH

10:00 p.m. - 8: a.m. 9/18/11: 100 x 10 hrs. = 1,000 PPH

Total: 20,000 PPH

At the end of Day 8 at 8:00 a.m. on September 24, 2011, I estimate Occupy Wall Street has logged 287,000 People Power Hours in NYC alone.

That's 8 two hour marches in 8 days of 20,000 people without the use of people power from existing groups.

A constant Occupation is much more powerful than any 8 separate marches.  This is just the start.
