"Ahhhhhh still too soon for 3/11 jokes!! (Don't worry, just keep that in mind.) Moving on... I see tons of first world problems that need solving in Japan -- too bad this market doesn't interest me ;) Happy to pass them along to you." - Mona Nomura

"What are you talking about?! The startup culture is alive and kicking... on the internet! Twitter, Github, Hackernews, Quora, even Reddit to name a few! It's 2014. There's no need to go to a crowded, over priced coffee shop in the Bay Area (Creamery, Philz, Blue Bottle, et al.) to experience culture, Mattadoor!" - Mona Nomura

"Definitely fair points however, Southeast Asia in particular is a market that is still at its infancy. Plenty of localized and problems across the region that needs solving. APAC is reminiscent of the US in 2006-07, when consumerism pre-share economy was starting to get disrupted. It's such an exciting time to be in the region right now. Thanks for the input Eran!" - Mona Nomura
RT @serkantoto: The Nintendo news isn’t that MK8 sold 326k copies in Japan. It’s that the game helped to sell only 10,000 more Wii U compared to last week.

"Hi Yan, thanks for the comment. Do you see the lack of ambition to expand abroad a problem? I believe it depends on what the founders are building and the problems they are trying to solve... Not everything has to be 'global' or 'US-centric'." - Mona Nomura

Another SE Asian startup raped by predatory VCs: 20% equity for $30,000 USD seed funding. So wrong.

From friend at Apple: Tim Cook just did ice bucket challenge at our Beer Bash. Challenged Bob Iger, Dr. Dre, Michael Franti (!!!)

RT @nickbilton: Here's a link to the live stream with Obama, expected to speak about Ferguson in a few minutes: http://www.c-span.org/video...
Believe it or not SFPD harassed Asians. When I was 15, I remember lying face down on the sidewalk while they searched the guys we were with.
These Tweets may make some of you uneasy. But this is the reality of America. Took me leaving my comfort zone to see/accept certain things.
I've met many talented non US residents educated in the States. They describe America as 'vile' re: acclimation, immigration, Visa issues.
Also: America is very hostile towards those who aren't White. SURPRISE.
That said, grateful for Twitter to shed light on issues people have been fighting against for years.
I get how people can be shocked about what's going on in Ferguson. But as a minority and having worked in hip-hop, I've seen it all.
People are already shitfaced and messy. It's not even 9pm in Tokyo... Because JAPAN.
RT @WesleyLowery: Apparently, in America, in 2014, police can manhandle you, take you into custody, put you in cell & then open the door like it didn't happen
. @WesleyLowery sorry that happened to you but obviously you don't get out much. Happens all day, everyday around the great US of A.
Social media douchebags are the worst.
Edelman published a post on how brands can maximize Robin Williams tragedy. Proves why public loves PR people. Stay classy. (Not linking.)
If you think Japan is super high tech, think again. Flip phone games still rake in US$1.6B: http://www.serkantoto.com/2014... via @serkantoto
Randomly bumped into three different people, in a span of 20 minutes, in a city as massive as Tokyo. Tonight is going to be weird.
Am I the only one who wonders why the US press specifies minority gender / race? Ex: "female entrepreneur" or "(not White race) scientist".
Launch Twitter. See some White guy tweet how Asians should be re-classified as White and inappropriate coroner reports. Close Twitter.
It really bothers me when iPhone or iPad are spelled with a capital i. So much so, I refuse to even type it.
You go girl - Glen Campbell
Why are Google and Asian telecos building $300M undersea cable connecting US to Japan?? Seems like a waste of $: http://www.businessinsider.com/r-googl...
