Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

In an attempt to learn python, organize my life and figure out how to mess with Chandler some more, I have decided to make a database of birthdays of my friends. If you consider yourself my friend, please go to the birthday entry form and enter your info. Thanks in advance!


I did and thank you for the bday surprise! :)


Hi Joi,
I entered my birthday. That is a really cool idea. What fun! I love birthdays! When is your big day?

BTW, check out my new blog Joi, its still a work in progress. I hope to have it finished soon.

It *is* a cool idea, reminding me of something I've always felt is one of the most humanizing, most community-making projects on the Web, altsense's happy.birthday.

You enter your name, address and date of nativity in the handy-dandy database, and thereafter every year when the day rolls around you get a nice passel of greetings from people involved in the altsense community - some you know, some you've never heard of. I'm a month out from my third happy.birthday now, and I'm already looking forward to seeing what kind of mail I get this time around.

And while I'm on the topic of birthdays, o-tanjobi omedeto gozaimasu (+2) to Wanderin' Raye Fukuda.

We're not friends at present, but we may be by the time my birthday rolls around this year. Nice to meet you!

My birthday is June 19, 1966.

Nice to meet you Jeremy!

Liz! Cool! You finally started a blog! I look forward to being a regular reader.

I really hope learning Python turns out to be as rewarding an expierience for you as it was for me- It almost seems like someone, *gasp*, designed a programming language with usability concerns in mind.

OH - so THAT's why you can't make it to Copenhagen for reBoot. Well Happy- B-day anyway.

Nice idea! I think you should capture in the form not only the email but also the url of the personal websites or blogs of your friends :-)

Luca! You read my mind. I was thinking about this on the plane. I think I'll put links to people on my page on their birthday.

Marc. Yup. Sorry I'm missing reBoot.

We have never met. But I admire you blog, so I guess I fullfil the "If you consider yourself my friend" part. I you ever come to Spain, send me a message.

Gee, that's nice. ;-) Thanks Pedro.
