Ok – whew – we are finally getting back in the swing here with a brand spanking new website and plan for gathering the MoMo Tokyo community together on November 30th. We’ve had tons of great feedback from you after the 5th Anniversary party and will be taking those comments forward on our upcoming events. For starters.. Food! Indeed, as most of us head straight to MoMo from work, hunger is a factor. So, we’ve arranged with the nice folks at Tableaux Lounge for a yummy buffet – that means no greasy fries – at only 1,000jpy per head. Get all the niggly details and be sure to RSVP Here.
Along with a cool jazz scene, a quasi outdoor patio and huge leather couches, there are also several Show & Tell table spots for some hands-on fun. We have confirmed five super interesting companies will be setup there for face 2 face interaction with you!
Digital Garage, Yes those demi-gods responsible for Twitter Japan, will be in the house with their latest products to #stream along with the MoMo community. TwiNavi is the gateway that guides users through the twitter world of official accounts by famous celebs and companies. TwitVideo is the new media portal where people can share their fun and memorable photos and videos. Our hearty congrats to the DG Mobile crew, as their Japanese client for Twitter launched here in October, check-out the site and take the product for a test-drive.. if you haven’t already?!? Meanwhile, be sure to follow @dg_mobile, and @momo_tokyo of course, for all the action!
We’re thrilled to welcome representatives from 34 SME European ICT companies who are visiting Tokyo the week of Nov 30 – Dec 4 as part of the EU Gateway programme. They will be bringing a broad range of technologies – several in the wireless related space – and clearly MoMo is a unique opportunity for them to meet with people from leading mobile companies in Japan. Note, these folks will also be running a trade fair at the Hilton hotel in Shinjuku on December 2nd and 3rd, Full Details Here.
It’s an honor to have Hitoshi Miyata from Dream Ranch coming to show his Memory Tree iPhone application. Created to help users track and trace memories, it uses basic hand gestures to enable easy operations to archive events on the fly, at any given location, in order to be saved as a keepsake. Record your memories onto invisible maps with time line layers using three amazingly simple motion-sensor actions: Shoot. Fly. Catch. This AR styled tool, compatible in both English and Japanese, will enable folks to visualize their experiences and help link memories by sharing key information such as when, where and what in order to connect with other members who have been there before or will visit the same place in the future!
