Article on TechCrunch: “Save Japan” Initiative At SXSW 2011 (And How You Can Help)

Here’s my article on TechCrunch in which I describe what the Japanese SXSW 2011 delegates (from GREE, Mixi, and other game and web companies) have been and still are doing to support the victims of the Japan disaster:
