I'm off to Beppu for the HyperNetwork conference. Had dinner with Howard who's also going to be speaking. I will be co-moderating a panel on Blogging. I'll try to be on IRC during the conference. See you there.
The network at this conference is routing through the local government's network and "for security reasons" they are blocking all ports except http, https, smtp, pop and imap. I can't do IRC, stream video or even ssh tunnel. Therefore, for "security reasons" I can not encrypt my traffic.
Looks like all you have got left is the web and mail.
Ross. Yup... bummer.
There is a blog in Japanese about the event.
