Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

I just ordered my Segway Ginger on They say delivery will be 2003. So I have the rest of the year to figure out how to smuggle it into Japan...


Why do you need to smuggle it in? Why not just sail through immigration on the thing, waving to the great unwashed?

Like public transport is that bad in Tokyo. Wouldn't know where to "park" one of these either. Five grand per person... sheesh.
