NM Media Industries Conference -- "MIX" -- Next Saturday!

Hi everyone...

I've sent a couple brief blurbs, but a few people have mentioned that I really haven't pushed it enough -- so apologies for the duplication.

Our fifth annual NM Media Industries Conference "MIX" is coming up next Saturday, January 17th at UNM with a pretty wide range of sessions and topics in animation, business, education, film, games, web/software and more.  We're also particularly please to have Ian Bogost for our lead-off talk that day.  After growing up in New Mexico, Ian's gone on to become one of the world's leading game educator/writer/producers, with a great ability to describe not only how interactive media is changing, but also how it can be used to better understand our world.

I think we're all concerned about the effects we'll see from the current economic situation, including decreased funding for many programs. However, the film and media industry is still a bright spot in New Mexico's economic landscape -- positioned to consolidate some of our gains and harness our talents for continued success.

We hope you can join us!
