Lots to write about, not enough time August 7, 2006Posted by fukumimi in general, Japan.
There are a bunch of things I have been meaning to write about, but I just haven’t had the time to sit down and compose my thoughts.
I’m in the UK at the moment (work, of course) and internet access is still poor. At least this is a work trip so I can charge the extortionate internet access charges which are the norm for UK hotels to the firm.
Some things I would like to write about in depth when I get the chance:
iza, the new(ish) site launched by the Sankei Shimbun newspaer, an attempt by old media to embrace blogs, tag clouds and Ajax.
The IPO of affilitate advertising outfit, ValueCommerce, a firm set up by a group of ex-pats. (thanks Gen for the reminder)
The fight for Hokuetsu Paper Mills between Oji Paper and Mitsubishi Corporation.
Leading Japanese VC NIF SMBC’s annoucement of a JPY60 Billion fund, and the impact of big fund sizes on the Japanese VC market.
ChuoAoyama announces that it will be rebranding, its new name, “Misuzu”.
