Gil Asakawa’s Overview of the BANANA Blogger Roundtable

Gil Asakawa of Nikkei View as well as has a great report about BANANA, the Asian American blogger round-up at USC this weekend, and there’s not really much I can disagree with him with. Was this first-ever roundtable of Asian-Asian content publishers from around the country a little rough around the edges? Sure. But gauging from some of the intense and complex topics and questions in the Q&A panel, the dialogue is still necessary, and it needs to continue. Hey, dialogue, isn’t that what 8Asians is all about? And besides, it was a great opportunity to meet other bloggers — who knew Angry Asian Man was so handsome?
