Something just happened here. Most outlets in LA reported that the City Council voted unanimously to support #OccupyLA. We retracted it. No one else has.

Ohhhh....I will use this.
Social media analytics and tracking can be very time-consuming and expensive. Here are five ready-made spreadsheets you can copy for free.

Over on OnCentral, we've been covering the trials that those released as a result of realignment will face when coming home. There are problems, and they're particularly exacerbated in South LA.

Introduction

P. Kim Bui is the West Coast producer for the social media reporting team at First Look Media. Her career is focused on storytelling on the Web and how journalism can learn from technology outside of the field. She’s also an adjunct instructor at the University of Southern California and co-founder of #wjchat, a weekly Twitter chat for web journalists.

Previously, she was a part of Digital First Media’s Thunderdome working on the breaking news team. She also worked on mobile projects for KPCC, bridging the gap between the editorial side and the technologists and managed KPCC's social media and outreach efforts with content and technology partners.

She is on the board of directors of the Online News Association, and co-organizes the group's L.A. contingent. She also is the program chat of V3, a digital media conference in Los Angeles, put on by the Asian American Journalists Association.

Her experience in Web journalism includes news organizations such as the Kansas City Star, APM's Marketplace and the San Luis Obispo Tribune, where she worked as a reporter. Bui has also worked on news start-ups like The Loop 21 and Beacon Reader. She was named one of Poynter's 35 influential people in social media in 2010.

Originally from Des Moines, Iowa, Bui graduated with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from Iowa State University.
