300 people attended what is sure to be one of the biggest get-togethers of bloggers in Akihabara, Tokyo’s (no: the world’s) geek paradise, yesterday. I took part as the only gaijin in the room ;).
The presentations and panel discussions were held completely in Japanese by a total of 9 high-profile bloggers, two of which I know personally. Topic-wise, the event was centered on different aspects of writing popular blogs: reasons, motivation, hints, problems, how is blogging connected with the speakers’ jobs etc.
The conference was divided into three sections (please note that all following links are in Japanese):
