Joi Ito's Web

Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

I'd like to put together a photo album on TypePad of last night's Creative Commons party. If you have any photos you wouldn't mind sharing under a CC by-nc-sa license, please send them to me. I will play editor and select photos and add my own captions, but if you have captions, especially names of people in photos, that would be helpful. If you've posted the pictures yourself, please either post links here or trackback.

Thanks for all of those who showed up. It was a great party!

I've been trying to "cut back" on my drinking, but it doesn't work. I got drunk last night and I regret it. So, I've quit drinking. If you're my friend please be supportive and don't offer me alcohol please.

Thank you.

UPDATE: We have set up a group blog called "We Quit Drinking". Please take a look.

The J-Wave interview was a blast. We must have said "blog" 50 times in 30 minutes. It was especially fun because everyone there were recent blog addicts. We tried very hard to explain it to people who had never blogged before, but I think a few times we probably got a bit hardcore. Anyway, I think if nothing else, we were able to convey our excitement and people will at least try to learn more about blogs. J-Wave is the 3rd largest radio station in Japan and has a lot of reach so I hope we have some impact. We got a lot of email from people during the show.

Anyway, thanks Sachi and Nonaka-san!

Here's the 32 meg mp3 of the show. (It's in Japanese.)
