By Seth Combs
Sara Solaimani isn't Mexican. Not even close. That might be racially insensitive to point out within certain contexts, but in the case of Solaimani, it's understandable that some might mistake her for being a Chicana.

Meet Hatsune Miku's makers

San Diego filmmaker Tara Knight examines the virtual pop icon and the mass of fans and creators behind her

By Kinsee Morlan
Hatsune Miku, a so-called "vocaloid"—a character that personifies vocal-singing synthesizer software—isn't just a representation of one person or even the company, Crypton Future Media, that created her. She's a product of the many people—artists, musicians and other creative fans—who've given her a persona.
