On the Web and In the News

This year is starting off well with an article in AsianWeek and Asian Pages which both feature recent interviews with me. Check them out if you get a chance!

L.A.O.S.,  an acronym for Lao Association of Students.  This site is specifically geared toward the Lao student, young and old who believes in using education as a stepping stone to a better future. It's just started but has a promising goal and will hopefully be regularly updated over the years ahead. I believe it can be part of an important oral history project of documenting our progress and perspective as a community in pursuing college goals.

The Celadon Review promises to be a forum in which to discuss and examine the issues and experiences of contemporary Asian American communities in this country and abroad. Through the publication of poetry, stories, visual art, and academic essays, they hope to further advance Asian American concerns to the forefront of the American consciousness.

On the other hand, we've lost a number of publications recently including East West Magazine and AsianWeek, although AsianWeek still intends to publish articles online and special editions. Asian American Press has largely been an online-only paper for several months now, but we're hoping to see a change in the coming months ahead.
