Eric Nakamura is co-founder and publisher of Giant Robot magazine. Described as “Asian American pop culture and beyond”, GIANT ROBOT began as a photocopied and stapled zine with a distribution of 240 copies has grown into a full-fledged color bi-monthly magazine.
Goh Nakamura is a San Francisco Bay Area based musician who writes ditties about parking tickets, impossible crushes and faraway dreamlands. With one foot in the traditional troubadour world and another in the digital age, he performs at venues small, large, and virtual, to an enthusiastic and ever growing audience. A fortuitous 2007 feature on YouTube's front page brought his music videos over a million views.
