Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

Thanks to everyone in Madrid for all of the hospitality and excellent company.

I'm off today to Rome. See you on the other side.

UPDATE: Just arrived in Rome. I had asked for a hotel with Internet. I realized when I arrived at the Hotel Hassler that I had stayed here once before with my mother and sister around 20 years or so ago. I remember it being an excellent hotel. However, I remember that they didn't take credit cards back then. Now they have Internet. I remember this was my late mother's favorite hotel in Rome...


Hello. I just let you know the governor Domoto was elected again as the governor of Chiba. I thought you liked the results. I live in Chiba also and I hope she changes Chiba a lot more in next four years.

Thanks for the great news Taiichi!

Don't forget to add the new 'plaze' so that we can track you... ;)

The Times Are A Changin' !


Hope you are well.
I need to get in touch with you.

Best Regards


Hi Joi, how can you afford to stay in such a luxory hotel? Not that I want to know anything personal about your income, of course, but some people in Italy do live one month with what you spend for 1 standard double room at the Hassler for 1 night, that is € 520,00


stop saying bullshit please!

The organizers of the conference paid for the hotel. I have no idea how expensive Hotel Hassler is since, as I said, the last time I stayed there was over 20 years ago. ;-P
