Early Morning In Tokyo and the Social Web

I have so much to share about my trip to Japan and meeting with dozens of people from Japan’s top companies, and over 20 bloggers and social media experts at last night’s blogger dinner.

Perhaps the best way to share is to keep it short, here are my most recent tweets:

One AM Tokyo
City Never Dark, Soft Glow
Sleepless City We Are

We Often Forget
Social Web About Culture,
Not Technology

Most Brands Do Not Join
Yet Japan Use Social Web
Fish Where The Fish Are

  • You know, living in Silicon Valley, it is hard not to get lost in the idea that all of this “social media” stuff is about technology.

    But fundamentally, it isn’t. It’s about people. Remember “guestbooks” back in the 90’s? Where you could go to a site and post a comment?

    They eventually got overrun with spam, but that’s besides the point. What’s important is that it was humans interacting in a way where their words would be shared for all to see.

    And that’s fundamentally what this “Web 2.0” thing is to me. It’s nothing new at all… it’s just better, because there are a heck of a lot more people, and we’ve developed our own culture.

  • These space saving portable storage closets even with all of their features are much more affordable than one would imagine. Even the elaborate styles that are described above with all of the amenities, the price is still surprisingly affordable between the $30 to $60 price ranges. These are for those custom storage solutions that are comparable in size to those built into the house. Sometimes they provide even more usable space than certain modular storage organizers built within the structure of the home.
