    Pixiq extended my contract slightly to allow them to move the comments and usernames over to the new blog, so I’m happy to say we’re ending this relationship on a positive note.
    September 29 will mark exactly two years I’ve been with Pixiq, so I will probably complete the two-year anniversary, but I still haven’t received any official word as to when is my final date.
    Meanwhile, the new design is coming along very nicely. You guys are going to be impressed.
    I didn’t like any of the Wordpress themes, so I drew up what I was looking for and sent it to the designer at Splotches, who is based in Europe, and he took what I gave him and added his own creative touch to it.
    So right now, it’s looking better than I even imagined.
    I’m currently in Orange County for a journalism workshop titled Covering Social Protest Movements in the Age of Social Media at the University of California Fullerton to which I was invited.
    The workshop was prompted by how quickly the news of the Kelly Thomas beating death video spread on the internet after it was released, putting the mainstream media “in the embarrassing position of being behind what turned into a national story about the police killing of a homeless schizophrenic man.”
    On Saturday night, I plan to meet a few PINAC readers at a pub in Santa Ana, so if you live in the area, feel free to join us.
    We’ll be at the Olde Ship British Pub and Restaurant, 1120 W. 17th St., Santa Ana, California.
    We plan to get there by 5 p.m., but will probably stay there a few hours. Send me a email to the address below if you want to touch base about that.
    Please send stories, tips and videos to carlosmiller@magiccitymedia.com.
