Asiajin launches

We’d like to announce the arrival of a weblog called ‘Asiajin’ which introduces Asian Internet startups to English speaking readers.
Asiajin will provide you information about Asian Internet trends, company profiles, key people, communities, conferences and events. We provide you essential information for professionals who want to do business in Asian market.
You may or may not already know us — “Akky” (Hiroki Akimoto) and Shunichi Arai – as we have been active bloggers on the Japanese scene for some time now. Akky’s weblog was voted ‘Alpha blogger’, one of the most prominent blogger awards in Japan whereas the Japanese government identified Arai as a ‘genius programmer’.
We both have technology backgrounds and a deep interest in the Internet industry and after attending a Web related conference in San Francisco, became concerned that Asian startups may be virtually invisible to the rest of the world.
Our objectives are to introduce Asian startups to the world and to strengthen relations between Asian Internet communities.
Asiajin means ‘Asian people’ in Japanese and the name was chosen in order to act as a unifying catalyst for the market in Asia.
At present Asiajin provides articles regarding Japanese companies and is gradually expanding itself to cover broader areas. Two Taiwanese journalists are expected to contribute to Asiajin and Korean startups are expected to be covered in the near future.
Please contact ‘ at gmail dot com’ for more information.
Asiajin team.
