YouTube and The Asia Society collaborated for a video series on Asian Americanness for Asian American Heritage Month. And I got to be included in it (very flattering). It’s a pretty fneat group — including a senator, Hollywood actors and a Silicon Valley start-up folk. The main video is a montage of interviews from a bunch of Asian Americans, and then we get our own video. And then Asian Americans are invited to submit their own and win an iPod if they get the one that is most watched.
Here is the announcement:
