twitter (how can one make any relevant statement every 30 seconds?)

Jason Calacanis interviews twitter founder Evan Williams, noting Robert Scoble was one of the major factors at the tipping point of the explosion of twitter.

The Internet in effects makes the user / customer segmentation more ocassion-based, than profile based. It’s more of what you do (email, search,  im, blog, sns) than who you are (age, sex, what have you). And of course, you sometimes “twit.”

twitterを日本語で楽しみたい方はJapanizeでよく翻訳できてる。ぼくはFirefoxでやってる。

Because we don’t have enough time to make a blog post on the go, enough time to twit. It’s a time cycle segmentation, occasion based segmentation and time spots of our day (and night) distributed long tail.

おつかれさまでした (Congratulations)

あまり話を聞いてなかったが、昼間のプレスリリースと同じ内容だったと思います。

おつかれさまでした。(English: Congratulations! Though I was not really listening to the presentation since the place was so crowded, I suppose what he talked about was more or less the same with the press release made during the day time on the same 12/4.)

Here is from netafull, YouTube.

More on FON la fonera launch party.

how the word-of-mouth catches up

Obviously Softbank mobile X01 HT is backed up by mass advertising (I mean, indirectly), while mylo and fon not backed up by mass advertising. H01 curve is steep, others’ more slow and gradual in mixi community size comparison. But hey they all surely catch up.

UPDATE: According to technorati.jp, “X01HT” is ranked as 3rd popular word, indicating the phenomena. I am also glad to know technorati.jp now has favorite tab, which has only been avalable in technorati.com (English).

UPDATE: FON increased significantly from 132 to 429 after the launching campaign on Dec 5, accompanied by La fonera giveaway for 5 days, Fon Night event in metropolitan Tokyo. It was covered by major media such as CNET Japan, IT Media (Online), World Business Satellite (News program, on channel 12, Network TV), Newspapers (which I haven’t confirmed the detail though).
