I'm in this months Yahoo! Internet Guide with some of my colleges talking about some of our Windows Live services and am also due to present at Microsoft's Remix conference which is all about the next generation web. Will be talking about building gadgets for Live.com and Vista. Some former colleagues from Amazon will be going along to present other stuff too - you may be interested in attending to find out more about the internet scene in Japan and to meet/network with other folks in the industry.
But what some people dont know is that Im going to add a flavor of Otaku-ism to my presentation ^o^.
