I'm meeting Adam @ Cafe8 near Omotesando. We're gonna chit chat about moblogging. So I want to try this 'live' experiment - if you are reading this in Tokyo and are interested in joining us now, please do. You can find directions online. I realize this is a long shot but thought it'd be fun.If you do show up, I'll buy you a drink and will grin a lot.

Hello Mie

Adam Greenfield introduced me to this site of yours today. He is my mentor in Information Architecture and I had a lesson with him today. He even mentioned he was meeting you for dinner. Man, and now hes appeared on your site! Feels weird seeing him on your site a few hours after being with him.

I think this site of yours is great. I love it. Looking through your past archives, I realise you live in Nishi-Koyama. I live there too and know exactly which NEW buildings you are talking about and that pharmacy that got renovated!

Keep up the good work for your site!

Hi Mie

Unfortunately France is too far away for me to join you for coffee. I check your site each day. It really is a great insight into another way of life. Quite different than here in the south of France.
I find the whole concept of moblogging so interesting. Still struggling with normal blogs myself. Keep up the great work.

Yeah, this connection b/w online and real life is interesting... without the human behind the postings, it'd be a mumble of heartless words, you know. We're all getting to know each other, beginning with this circle in Tokyo...and it won't matter if you're in France or anywhere eventually! But right now, I wouldn't mind being in southern France. Nice.

Man!!!!!!! I am so pissed off I missed that one!! I was out for dinner with a friend of mine so didn't get your RSS feed live and so didn't get to know about it!

Hi Paul,
There will be another time. It was just an experiment for fun. : ) But next time we meet up, I want to discuss some projects. Maybe with UltraBob too. I'm interested in trying to get more interactive/creative with how I/we use Tokyo and blogging.

There'll be another time, but I precisely wanted to do it 'right now'...I intentionally didn't give any advance notice. If it had worked, I thought it'd be so cool to have someone checking the web, thinking "hmmmm, I'll hop on down" and thus linking the web to real life a bit more directly ya know.
