ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mindpix Corporation (OTC Pink: MPIX) previously announced they signed a Co-Production agreement with ZZYX Entertainment LLC, for the production and distribution of the December 21, 2012 Concert. We are pleased to announce today the completion of a co-partnership agreement with "Synthesis 2012." The New Beginnings Concert will include a live stream from the Synthesis 2012 stage and exclusive programming with Mayan leaders at Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo in Yucatan Mexico.
The Concert Event will be called "The New Beginnings 12-21 Concert." The New Beginnings 12-21 Concert will be a Live Global musical festival event from all over the world. According to the Mayan calendar December 21, 2012 marks the end of a "World Age." Mayan elders do not prophesize 12-21 as the end of the world but rather a time of transition highlighting the importance of our choice on how we wish to enter the future ahead. We intend to unite people in a common cause, through the universal language of music, asking people to take action for positive change around the planet and to raise funds for charities who are affecting changes everyday throughout the world. The primary charitable theme for this event will be to support organization involved in feeding and educating children around the world. The Live event main stage will be in Orlando, Florida with the second stage in Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo, Yucatan Mexico with Synthesis 2012. The event will be streamed around the world with special premium programming available on a pay for view basis. More details on the concert including; locations, performing artists, celebrity contributors, beneficiary charities and how to view the event will be released shortly.
Armando Almirall, President and CEO of MPIX states; "The cooperation with Synthesis 2012 is providing an extraordinary resource for our event. Synthesis brings relationships like the International Mayan Council and a rich bed of both live and taped programming to be used in our streaming event. Previously we planned to tape the New Beginnings 2012 Concert in Belize, but the Synthesis 2012 productions from Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo in Yucatan Mexico offered Mindpix Corporation a more substantial reflection of the Mayan culture through their approved schedule of historical educational and entertainment events. We look forward to having Rick Garson lead our productions team with this being the first of many events to be completed with ZZYX."

Rick Garson, the Chairman and CEO of ZZYX states; "12-21-2012 is an Equinox event that only happens every 26,000 years. This is a once in a millennium opportunity to kick-off of a 365-day initiative with multiple events to raise awareness and bring people together. Change always starts with one and this music event will literally reach hundreds of millions of people worldwide through the universal language of music to do some good. Many people talk about doing good, these concerts will give all of us the opportunity to effect positive change. This has been a personal mission of mine and I was so pleased in finding likeminded partners in Mindpix."
"The New Beginning" theme originated in Mayan history, celebrating the ending of the current Mayan 'long count calendar' – the oldest and most accurate calendar in the world. This event only occurs every 5,126 years and will officially take place on the 21st of December 2012. This December 21st, 2012 date also marks not only this year's Winter Equinox but also the Processional Earth, which many believe is the alignment of planet Earth with the very center of the Milky Way galaxy. Experts say this alignment only occurs once every twenty six thousand years.
Michael DiMartino, Executive Producer of Synthesis 2012 states; "The cooperation with MPIX and ZZYX only enhances our event and provides wider media distribution of this landmark event. Synthesis 2012 is a global gathering, world music festival and spiritual celebration that is important for the world to view as the current Mayan calendar ends and we begin a new world cycle. The Mayan people are re-unifying their culture and co-creating a message for humanity, a message of hope and transformation in these times of transition. The New Beginnings 12-21 Concert and Synthesis 2012 both serve to create global awareness of this historic transformation celebration and planetary synchronization as a crossroads between the past, the present and the future."

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Ben Perlmutter, a Sales Engineer with IBM Cloudant, demonstrated techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online. The focus of this talk was on IBM Cloudant, Apache CouchDB, and ...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
