Interview by AC's
Mario Machado.

Celebrities and Business titans joined forces to discuss issues affecting our Asian global community. Committee of 100, a national, non-politically aligned organization met in Los Angeles to honor leaders in Entertainment and Technology.

AsianConnections brought our broadcast news team led by our own legendary interviewer, ten time Emmy award-winner Mario Machado, to bring to you exclusive online video interviews and highlights of the conference, from thought-provoking comments from Yahoo!'s Jerry Yang to Hollywood mogul Christopher Lee.

AC will bring to you highlights of our interviews showcasing these distinguished leaders.

Pioneer broadcast television news journalist Bill Moyers gave a moving speech on the lack of historical documentation of the history of Chinese in America. Moyers is busy working on a new documentary series on Chinese Americans. Moyers said, "No matter how powerful we are --- no matter how rich or successful or celebrated -- we will never be truly heard, until our ancestors have spoken. I want this series to give them their voice back."

Committee of 100's Conference Chair Matthew Fong opened the session by urging the attendees to, "re-think, re-shape, or reform what you are doing today." Fong said, "Not only take time to celebrate who we are, but to challenge each other into what we can become."

Conference Co-Chair Janet Yang, executive director of the acclaimed motion picture "Joy Luck Club," brought together the co-stars of this ground-breaking movie. It was one of those rare occasions where you could meet Dr. Pehong Chen, Chairman of Broadvision; Dr. Raymond Ch'ien, Chairman of China.com; Tom Yuen, Chairman of SRS Labs; Ms. Lisa Ling, co-host of ABC-TV's "The View;" and Ming-Na, actress "Joy Luck Club" - literally all in one room. And they were just a few of the distinguished attendees.
