On June 14-15, the Asian American Journalists Association‒Los Angeles presents its second annual V3 Digital Media Conference, dedicated to showcasing the “Vision. Visibility. Voice.” of the most pioneering, interesting and influential Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in today’s evolving digital media landscape.
We hope you’ll come along for our exciting and affordable V-Ticket ride. For as little as $40, you can meet, explore alongside and be inspired by hundreds of experts, thought leaders and fellow adventurers in creating or consuming blogs, social media and other new forms of communication. We’ll make sure to feed your appetites as well as your brains, with great food and drink, including Roy’s Hawaiian fusion classic dishes, the famous Kogi BBQ truck’s signature tacos and fare from McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and Kirin, among others.
Did we mention pioneering? We’ll recognize four leading Asian American voices and visionaries — restaurateur Roy Choi of Kogi fame, civil rights hero Grace Lee Boggs and journalists Richard Lui and Gil Asakawa — at an evening awards reception at the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena on June 14. We’ll reconvene the next morning at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo in downtown Los Angeles for an entire day of panels and workshops on the digital theme.
Did we mention interesting? Panel and plenary topics include “Asian Visibility in Hollywood and Globally Online,” “The Future of Journalism in the Digital World,” “Social Media Lessons From the 2012 Presidential Campaign,” “Creating Moving Messaging: Nonprofits and Digital Media Options” and “Sustainability: Success as a Woman in Digital Media.” Hands-on workshops will cover subjects as varied as taking better mobile photos, growing your digital footprint and giving a good interview, and with Verizon we’ll demonstrate the latest in smart accessories and devices.
Did we mention influential? Panelists include blogger Phil Yu (a.k.a. “Angry Asian Man”); marketing legend Bill Imada of IW Group; Elisa Camahort Page, co-founder of BlogHer; actor Parvesh Cheena; actress Lynn Chen; visual journalist Marilyn Chung; filmmaker Patrick Epino; digital editor Megan Garvey of the Los Angeles Times; tech editor Gregory Han; leading web journalist Robert Hernandez of USC; Pradeepa Jeeva, head of production at YOMYOMF; consumer Internet executive Harry Lin; and Canadian broadcaster Tetsuro Shigematsu.
