We hope you all had a Super Holiday and come back now rested & ready to for another hectic year. By all accounts the Tech-Tribes Bonenkai was a smashing success, with over 400 in the house and we raised 120,000jpy for the inaugural Beers for Bytes cause, many thanks to everyone who made that possible. Based on all the feedback, it does seem we should consider running more of these combined gatherings, maybe a Hanami hook-up this spring would be an idea?!?
Meanwhile, please do mark February 8th on your fancy new calendar and plan to join us at SuperDeluxe for the 1st ever Tokyo 2.0 x MoMo Tokyo joint event. We have a really great list of speakers for the keynote presentations and lightning talks – see below – with our full evening agenda, on Fixed Mobile Convergence, all locked down. As you might imagine it will be a rockin scene!
