A new Web community event WISH2009, a sort of mini "TechCrunch50" Japan version, will be held in Tokyo on August 21, 2009.
It is a showcase of start-ups and organizations trying out a new things on the Web, and a place for Web innovators to gather and exchange ideas. Please see the details at the following Asiajin blog.
It is held by AMN (Agile Media Network), a premier blog network in Japan, and my Japanese blog is honored to be a part of it. The number of presenters are still small compared to TechCrunch, but am really excited to see such event happening in Japan as well, organized by a start-up.
You can still sign up to attend. Please visit WISH2009 website. http://agilemedia.jp/wish2009/ (Sorry, Japanese only).
