Yesterday, this month’s Venture Beat Networking Party took place, this time in a new venue near Roppongi.
As always, the invitation-only event, backed by CNET Japan, was attended by a number (over 50) of high-profile CEOs, VCs, Tech journalists…and me.
For example, I was fortunate to meet Batara Eto who is the former CTO of Japan’s biggest SNS, Mixi. Not only that, Batara-san even came up with the original idea for Mixi for which he is still a technical advisor for! And I have to say he is a very friendly and surprisingly modest person.
Another cool thing worth mentioning is a full-fledged DJ application for the iPhone I saw, developed by Atsushi Hoshino (who is also president of a web company called New Forestar). The app is still unofficial but you can have a quick look at it below. Nice work!
