So when I came to Tokyo somebody told me that PauseTalk was good, but that isn't happening anymore. And Ride The Lightning is on a break from the current format - but is supposedly returning.
I go to UX talk whenever I can, I really enjoy it.
I know about the monthly Hacker news meetup, it's great but for me sometimes a bit too developer-y. The same counts for the iOS developer meetup (actually I never went because it's on a Saturday morning).
I went to a nice Tokyo Cheapo event last week but that nothing to do with design at all. So where are those design related events? Is everyone in an obon-sleep or what?
