CNET Japan launches new site focussing on IT technology ventures September 6, 2006Posted by fukumimi in Internet, IT, Japan, Media, Uncategorized.
CNET Networks Japan, the outfit behind CNET Japan and ZDNET Japan, launched CNET Venture View (site in Japanese). The new site features news and press releases, blogs written by business leaders, entrepreneurs and VCs (Masa Kobayashi from Globis Capital Partners, Ryu Muramatsu from GMO Venture Partners, Yozo Kaneko from Netage Capital Partners, and Hisashi Katsuya from IBM Venture Capital Group has an editorial thing going), editorials, and a directory of IT ventures.
Most of the content isn’t really new, the news and press releases are the same as what was being published on CNET Japan, as are most of the blogs. (some new bloggers have been recently recruited to bulk up the blogger pool)
The directory is a new feature, and the site features tags which may be a useful feature as content is built up. There does seem to be a lot of content which has been transplanted from the main CNET Japan portal, bringing everything together in one place does make it easier for people following the sector.
