Informal HN Get-Together, Tokyo Japan – Friday 18th of March in Shibuya

Since the earthquake struck at 2:46pm Japan time last Friday, Japan has been in dis-array.

Of course, what we’ve been through in Tokyo doesn’t hold a candle to the devastation and suffering up north in Sendai, and our hearts go out to the victims and their families.

In the past few days in Tokyo, we’ve been through earthquakes, aftershocks, our hearts jumping into our throats when the house starts wobbling again, tsunami warnings, possible nuclear meltdowns, power outages, sardine-packed trains, and possible Tokyo wide blackouts, and we feel like it’s time for a drink.

If you’re in Tokyo, yearning for a return to normality, and would like to have a drink with some fellow hackers (assuming of course, nothing changes for the worse), come out and have a beer with us.

Meeting time: 7pm, 18th of March
Meeting place: Failte, Shibuya

Hope to see you there.

  1. Paul and Jason,

    Thanks for putting together this HN meetup. I had a great time and I’m looking forward to the next one. What are you guys thinking for timeframe, mid-May possibly? If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
