This Weekend’s Three Tech Events You Must See

On this weekend, here we can get a chance to witness three great tech events in a row.

TEDxTokyo's Logo

As first of all, a Tokyo-based social entrepreneur Todd Porter, the co-founder of Tokyo International School Patrick Newell and their companions will have the first event of TedxTokyo on this coming Friday at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, called Miraikan, which is located in Tokyo’s waterfront.  The event’s official site is here.   And for those who have no chance to attend, the organizers will bring you a livecast streaming here.   The livecast will probably start in Friday morning in J.S.T., meaning around Friday midnight in U.T.C.

Infinity Ventures Summit 2009 Spring

Secondary, an independent venture capital unit founded by three Japanese tech-finance experts, Infinity Venture Partners[J] intends to have a bi-annual presentation event for Japanese tech start-ups, which is titled Infinity Ventures Summit (IVS) 2009 Spring, in Japan’s nothern city of Sapporo, Hokkaido.   We have not confirmed if they bring a livestream on the event.    (Basically the event is opened only for invited attendees, and not all the event scenes have been disclosed for the previous editions.)

Make Tokyo's Logo

Thirdly, O’reilly Japan[J] will hold Make: Tokyo 03[J] on this coming Saturday and Sunday in association with Tama Art University, Digital Hollywood University and Tokyo Polytechnic University.   Many gadget developers and inventors come together in a place and use this opportunity to proudly exhibit their works to the public.

Following Japanese mobile carriers’ presentations on their brand new products and services for summer 2009, a number of tech events are scheduled in this season, which may make us a little bit busier.   But we Asiajin will try out best to cover these events as much as possible.   Don’t miss it.
