I'll write more tomorrow when my brain is a bit more fresh, but thanks for showing up to Moda tonight. It was great. I didn't get everyone's name/blog URL who came so please leave a comment here with your URL if you feel like it.
We also talked a lot about Japan and many of the problems Japan faces. Bill is very supportive of our efforts and I hope that with Brian's help, we can get The Economist to cover Japan in an objective way. Media coverage will be essential in our efforts to push for more transparency.
Scoble, who was doing TabletPC's at NEC has left and joined Microsoft. He's an important part of the blogging community and I hope this ends up changing Microsoft in a good way. Good luck Scoble. I have mixed feelings, but I've shared them with him. I think it's the right think for him though.
It reminds me the quote from David Smith on Frank Boosman's blog about the similarity between people's view of MS and the US.
Since Dave Winer blogged this news already, I assume I can too. ;-)
I've moved my Wiki to a semi-permanent server and started adding content. The URL is: http://joi.ito.com/joiwiki/ One page, I thought might be interesting was a public To Do List. Anyone who wants me to do something or who wants to reach me should feel free to add to my public To Do List. I promise to check it every day. Please make sure you sign the To Do entry and also create a homepage on my Wiki with your contact info so I can track you more easily. This is an experiment so any constructive thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
