Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

Marc Canter in full-motion
John Markoff and Paul Mercer
Barak and Markoff gadgeting
Saw Marc Canter for coffee and got his pitch on the future of things. I had been staring at "still Marc" for so long on his blog, that when I saw "full-motion Marc" it was totally amazing! Marc was a bundle of energy and excitement and totally inspiring. I have to remember that all of these people that I blog with and chat with have bodies that move, talk and gesture. ;-)

Later, Barak, Jun, Minami and I had dinner with John Markoff from the NYT and Paul Mercer who founded Pixo. It was a great dinner, but we talked about and played with our gadgets WAY too much. ;-)

Dear Mr John

I am ( Richard eyadema ) the first son of (Mr Gabriel .O.
Eyadema) former president of (REPUBLIC OF TOGO) I want
you to help me to get out of this country because my
country has been so dangeros to me because During my
father's tenture as a former president,he secretly
deposited two trunks boxes valued at TEN MILLION
DOLLAR cash ($10,000,000.00) in a private security
company here in Accra Ghana,in custody of my
name although he declared the content as gold and
personal effects for security reasons.

Meanwhile,the whole family has mandated me to use this
money for the benefit of the entire family since I am
the only one that is not under persecution.I would be
grateful if you can assist me in the remittance of this
fund by swift transfer into your account abroad for
the benefit of my entire family and I will investment it in your country and I have already taken refuge in Ghana to avoid persecution back home and also our accounts both foreign and local have been frozen.

In addition to the unlawful arrest going on in my
country (TOGO),this is an SOS message as I only realy
on this money for survival,invariably I hope on your
mercy,honesty and sincerity I would be glad if you can
assist me as my father's foreign techincal partner in the security company here in Accra,Ghana and also assist me to invest this fund in any viable investment in your country so that my family can be able to start
life again with this.

Right now,I am hoping to further my education in your
country immediately after the successful transfer of
this fund abroad with your assistance,It was due to my
father's death that made me stop my doctoring degree
course at the University of Togo in order to help my
family from total dehumanisation.

Every modality on how to invest this fund must be
undertaken by you,why because,I don't have any
knowledge about business,moreover I am too young to
handle such amount of money in any way.

Please note that this money is in cash and I am
preparing to offer you a 25% 0f the total amount and 5%for your expenses for your assistance, and be rest assured that this is 100% rick free,The Togo government has no knowledge about this money,including this conutry's government(Ghana) where I have taken refuge,your urgent response would indicate your interest therefore I am seriously looking forword in receiving your quick response soon.

Remember I will not fail to furnish you with all the
information and documents relating to this money when
you indicate your interst to be of help to me.

THANK you God bless you

Your's faithfully

Richard Eyadema
