I’ll definitely be looking for their website. Also, I think you’ve captured the essence of podcasting. It’s informal and spontaneous. I know you prefer the videocasting, which I really enjoy as well, but you do a great job with the podcast. I was really happy you picked it up again, even if it’s only when the mood strikes you. Again, that’s the spirit of the thing. Keep it up and thanks!!!

That’s an interesting URL you posted. I didn’t know you could do that with FeedBurner.

I saw a screenshot online from a TV news program that two people were arrested. On the way home tonight I’m going to pick up a few of the gossip rags to see how they covered it.

It wasn’t just two people passing the photos around–more like hundreds or thousands of people. And “ass hair burger” and her real name are top search engine queries.

I guess it’s hard for people not involved in the Japanese online community to understand how huge this incident became. Mixi has 7 million subscribers, and a lot of them don’t hide their identies. This was a real wake-up call to be more careful from now on.

What I can’t understand is why Mixi reacted so heavy-handedly by deleting so many accounts with complete disregard as to whether or not they were involved. Did somone in power who doesn’t understand the Internet put the fear of God into them? That’s what tarnished their reputation the most. Pissing off bloggers is a bad idea. They tend to complain in a big way to an enormous audience. I was hoping to get a Mixi account, but I’ve changed my mind.

BTW, if you ever want to explain MySpace to someone in Japan, you have to tell them “it’s like Mixi” because they’ve never heard of it. YouTube, on the other hand, is all the rage here.

They’re supposed to have a show in November in Kichijoji. After that the next show is January 13 in Kichijoji. Let’s get together at one of these shows.
