After not being able to attend last month, I went to the Mobile Monday Tokyo event last…Monday. This time the event took place in a lounge-like club space in Akasaka.
Unfortunately, I was too late for Sadayuki Matsumoto’s presentation on trunc, a personalized homepage service focused on Japanese web applications. Matsumoto-san is Director of Operations and Chief of Web Operations at web and mobile solutions provider Xtone.
After Kinose-san’s presentation, I took the chance to tell him the I am the guy exposing his service to the Non-Japanese world through my Techcrunch article on Nico Nico (Japanese version) – and he was shocked to see me in person ;). Kinose-san told me he is Director both at Niwango (the company running Nico Nico) and Xtone.
I think the Mobile Monday events are always very, very valuable networking-wise and will attend the next one on August 25th as well. A friend of mine will hold a presentation next time. I don’t know if I can tell the topic here and now and therefore prefer to keep it secret.
Please keep in mind the event requires registration and that the organizers are selecting attendees individually!
