Special thanks to all those who came out for our New Year Shinnenkai last week! It was a great way to kick off 2006. You might have noticed some of us were running a bit late as a result of the concurrent Mobile Industry Panel hosted by MoMo Tokyo sponsor Morgan Lewis – TMI on the same evening. By all accounts both events were packed and provided valuable mobile insight and connections for participants.
Now that the party season is over (Phew!), we’re getting back into our regular MoMo format starting off this month at the MTV Studio Cafe in Harajuku for the next event on 27 February. We’ve got a line-up of super presentations from the cutting-edge mobile folks at DG Mobile and Technorati Japan. We’ll be streaming live video to the fixed and mobile web, a MoMo first!
