Welcome to the Little Tokyo Blog

We've set up this space where members of the Little Tokyo community could share information, thoughts, ideas, and opinions about the Little Tokyo neighborhood, it's people, politics, culture/history, businesses, and events.


Little Tokyo Blog & Website Project

Hello this is Michael, the NCI intern who worked on this blog over summer. At todays (10/27) Little Tokyo Community Council at the Japanese American National Museum I made a presentation about my project. A more thorough proposal and concept of the presentation can be found HERE (in PDF, available for a limited time).

In the presentation today, I proposed 6 recommendations for the future development of this blog:
  1. LTCC assign a subcommittee to coordinate the blog and website.
  2. Establish new branding of Little Tokyo Portal and Blog sites
  3. Design and develop content for portal and blog sites.
  4. Spark community involvement by promoting online discussion of important topics such as the Metro regional connector.
  5. Seek out revenue generating enterprises.
  6. Launch marketing and outreach campaign (flyers & stickers, outreach to community).
I hope you have a chance to take a look at it, and I welcome any comments, feedback and ideas on how to improve the project.

It's been about a month or so since I have been back in Little Tokyo, but it was nice to come back and attend another LTCC meeting and catch up on what has been going on.
