Back from SES Chicago and only 20 days left in the year!

I spoke about Japanese Internet Market at SES Chicago 2007's "Search Around The World" session on day 1. The Asian market including Japan is an important market for not only the large corporations but also for small and mid-size businesses. I hope my presentation gave some new information to people came to the session.
