I was in Düsseldorf at that time and I was typing into Twitter. There was this projector that projected into this Occupy Central building whatever people tweeted. People could feel that others are there. A journalist deployed in Hong Kong said the website of the occupy has got to be the most technological advanced in history. Then his friends said: Wait I have seen this website before. Then Chia-liang Kao (Slide 39) said, co-founder of g0v, this is forked form our git hub. Basically the logistic systems were forked from the Sunflower Movement, it is exactly the same code with some modifications. It provides the live broadcast, the mapping of the news and the logistics. The map shows in real-time to the barricades the police forces, the gathering points, the first medical aid sites.
