    It was a pleasure meeting you at NILS. By the way, your description of my company finishes in an open-ended manner as the last sentence for some reason is not complete.

    Personally, I enjoyed meeting the fellow VCs and entrepreneurs from Japan at NILS. I have found them open and engaging despite that I speak very little Japanese. In fact, they invited me over for a night out in downtown Sapporo where we ate very good seafood followed by a visit to a local karaoke bar with some nice booze to keep our spirit high.

    Most of them spoke some level of English and were able to communicate resonably well, although from time to time, I had to rely on the translator for more clear understanding.

    See some great opportunities in Japan for

    Have asked my guys to check your service and if they find it
    interesting, Will have someone in my office be in touch with you.

    Regardless, let's keep in touch.

      Mr Hong, thanks for visiting my blog. I realized the content was missing, only now. Perhaps the best way to make the content complete would be, well, a guest post by you - will i be able to have the honor of having you on my blog? I'll send an email soon :)

    Thank you Oliver.

    Chang, Oliver's description is 100% accurate. We're looking for a consultant to help open up the Asian market. Would you be interested in talking further?

    I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to Sam Wick of Userplane. Chang, Sam is head of Business Development at Userplane. They are interested in expansion outside the US into Asia and Europe and he asked me whom I knew in Asia that had their finger on the pulse of the social networking and web2.0 scene in the east and you immediately came to mind.

    I don't know what you are up to these days or how busy you are but I thought I would at least open the door for you and Sam to begin a dialog. I don't need to be in the way, but I am certainly happy to lend a hand in whatever capacity it become clear I can be of value.

    If either of you have any questions or problems or for some reason have trouble connecting, please let me know and I will see what I can do to help facilitate interaction and forward progress.

    Sincere Regards,

      Sorry Sam, I don't check out my guestbooks so often so I missed this one. Although I'm a full time CEO so I can't be involved in the action directly, but I'd be more than happy to introduce proper people to you, if you want. Thanks! // And Oliver how are you? I'll send an email shortly.

      Hi, I just saw this - I don't check out my guestbook so often (which isn't too good I guess ^^) I just subscribed to your Ning site.. how can I move from there? :)

    I came across your blog while browsing some web2 stories. Very well written and organized I must say. I'm interested in getting your perspective on the industry's adoption of Web 2.0 Services and the ties into hardware devices (consumer as well as enterprise).

    • Web 2.0 Asia 2007/05/02 01:29

      Thanks for the comment - I'll try to write a post on that topic soon.
