Allied Media Conference gives press power to the people

The Allied Media Conference is a four-day long grassroots media training seminar, in which professionals and enthusiasts school each other on everything from graphic design and blogging to performance arts and social justice issues. This year's national conference picked Detroit as Ground Zero for the group's guerrilla education training. It all kicks off June 23 at the McGregor Memorial Hall at Wayne State.

Registration is still open and is on a sliding income scale ($100 is the suggested amount for the four-day conference).

Excerpt:

At the AMC, media creation is not only about personal expression, but about transformation of ourselves and the structures of power around us. We create media that exposes, investigates, resists, heals, builds confidence and radical hope, incites dialogue and debate. We demystify technology, not only learning how to use it, but how to take it apart, fix it and build our own.  We do it ourselves and as communities, connecting across geographic and generational boundaries.

Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to ... read?

Everywhere you looked this week, tweeters were announcing a Halloween party. From art galleries to film houses to the hangout spot of Curtis Granderson, Detroit tweeters were all pretty happy with their choice of venue.

Wherever you spent your Halloween, one thing is for certain -- Detroit was ready for a party.

@Southloop spent the evening with Detroit Tigers' Curtis Ganderson: Best. Halloween. Ever. Met Curtis Granderson! He was dressed as one of the guys from revenge of the nerds. Got a pic and everthing.

Maybe some hitting advice was exchanged 'cause, Curtis, you need to hit better than .250.

@Unreal_real went to a very spooky spot where its Halloween 365 days a year. Well, at least it seems that way: Theatre Bizarre in Detroit. The greatest Halloween experience in the world

Oh, and there's this other thing that's happening here in the city, besides Halloween. You might have heard of it the election. A few tweeters were into that, too.

@Annaleighclark asked for a little help with her voting card: I have one open slot on my ticket for tomorrow's Detroit city council vote. Who should it go to??
