Hi all,

I should say I have been impressed by the Einstein Night at
AppleStore Ginza yesterday night.
This event was organized by Newton Users living in Tokyo, around
Makoto Nukui (aka GNUE) and the Newton Gravity Group.

Not only did they managed to get a slot at the AppleStore theater to
talk about the Newton (I was somewhat scared when Sai talked about
Steve Jobs in his presentation of the Newton history), but there were
around 60 persons attending the event. Check the group picture there:

It's the largest Newton user audience I've ever seen. Apparently, it
was the resurrection of Newton Japan. They didn't meet for eight
years and they were all there, most of them brought their Newton.

I should say the organization was really great. The Newton Gravity
group even found a Newton user who did the simultaneous translation.
Everything worked smoothly, surprisingly my demos worked as
expected :). The AppleStore provided a lot of facilities. The
AppleStore staff said it was one of the largest user event there.

People were apparently very happy of the event. Everything was filmed
and pictures were taken. I'll let you know when more material will be
posted online.

I'm really thankful for all the organization staff for this wonderful
evening.

Paul
