Daniel Scuka is a familiar face to the Wireless Watch Japan community not only as the co-founder and visionary behind the media project, but also as the site’s video host. Prior to his move to the business manager’s seat at WWJ (as well as a relo to Frankfurt), Daniel organized a team of journalist successors to take over WWJ in Tokyo. Newly joined reporter and video host John Alderman interviewed him just before he left. Daniel shared the ideas the spurred him to create Wireless Watch Japan, the activity that still inspires him, and his forecast for the future of the mobile Internet in Japan. This program is a great, quick overview of what makes Japan the world’s most exciting market and an important test-bed for the globe’s mobile industry. Full Program Run-time 14:35
Daniel recently moved to Germany with his family, after organizing a team of hand-picked successors on the ground here in Tokyo (don’t worry though, he’ll still be very active on this project). Just before he left Daniel shared the ideas that spurred him to create Wireless Watch Japan, the activity that still inspires him, and his vision for the future of wireless in Japan. The interview is a good quick overview of what makes Japan an exciting market and an important test-bed for the industry around the world.
He also details the new WWJ membership service model, in effect our desire to foster a networking community for wireless Internet professionals worldwide.The re-launched wirelesswatch.jp site provides subscribers (like you) a closed-circuit platform with press release submission, regular news updates and discussion forums. Not only “Business Intelligence for Professionals” but a real opportunity for our members to meet and network with each other.
While it’s not a free lunch anymore, what we are building will prove to have significant value to our members at a reasonable subscription fee. With this platform WWJ will continue to deliver the straight goods from the Japan, and indeed the global, wireless scene. Working together we can kick the old style (one-to-many) door wide open.. so get involved, get connected and spread the word – “We’rrrrre back, and Ready to Rumble”.
