Yeah, the website has been kind of, um, not updated lately. But CMA has been busy lately elsewhere:
* We took part, and even organized a panel (in MP3 format) at the national conference of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, which was held in Chicago earlier in the month.
* There was this wee antiwar march which CMA co-sponsored and which saw some 5000 folks take part on Chicago's Magnificent Mile.
* There were appearances on WZRD Chicago radio and on WCIU Channel 26 television on the show 26 N. Halsted. The WCIU episode is supposed to reair soon; watch this webpage for updates.
* We wrote and published another op-ed which the Tribune wouldn't touch with a million-foot pole.
* There's activity afoot on the state video franchise fight. For example, there's this video from CAN TV of a recent press conference. More details and media of recent testimony is linked on the Keep Us Connected website; we've got some more viral media ideas in the works on this fight.
* We're also debating and figuring out on what to do about the Conrad Black trial going on in Chicago. Any ideas? Let us know.
