Mobile Monday – Bonenkai 2010 – Tech Party

Update: What a fantastic evening we had with all of the tribes coming together for our annual TechXmas event, aka: Tokyo’s Biggest Tech Party Ever. We had an Awesome Venue for the 2010 gig with a great collection of participating groups and some 400 very cool folks on hand for the massive mixer. We raised enough cash to fund some 1,250 books for Room to Read, and gave away a handful of groovy prizes, another big shout out to everyone involved who made this whole thing possible.. You-All-Rock!

A super way to close 2010 which saw us run 6 gatherings, including our 6th birthday and 50th event in Japan on Sept. 13th along with the 10th Anniversary celebration in Helsinki!

Otherwise, we look forward to another super agenda in 2011 and always open to your topic requests and kind offers for continued support. Meanwhile, we wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday season. As always, do feel free to drop us a note here anytime and we’ll see you all again real soon.
