Tonight! It was the Tweetup Tokyo 2009 at Ebisu (Tokyo) near the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography where an exposition of Keizo Kitajima is getting place. A nice and great event with the participation of Biz Stone (@biz) Co-founder of Twitter, Inc. and many people from the internet, blogging and technology community in Tokyo, like my friends Danny Choo (@dannychoo) and Steve Nagata (@stevenagata)^^;
They explained the growth of twitter in Japan, just as a phenomenon compared to other countries, and how it’s influencing the way Japanese interact in internet.
I love this kind of events specially for the great mix of people that you can find there. There are IT guys, artists, photographers, journalists, writers, hard beer drinkers, everything. It’s a mix but it’s creative.
Last Friday I went to the HUOVA living art event. It was pretty interesting and a lot of cool people were there.
The concept is simple, just a painting in 20 minutes in front of a public. Creating just in the moment, living art is what happened that day.
It was located in Shibuya, the young district of Tokyo in an old and surrealist building.
