I’d like to once again thank everyone who made it to PauseTalk Vol. 49 at Cafe Pause earlier this month — it was held on April 4. I remember a lot of great discussions going on, and although it mostly focused on the Japan Earthquake and its aftermath, I think it still fit the bill as a proper PauseTalk.
Let me also bring up the fact that the next PauseTalk will indeed be Vol. 50, which is something that I think deserves to be celebrated or marked in some way. I’m not sure exactly how that will happen, but so far I’ve had a few ideas, which include possibly recording a live episode of my Codex podcast during the evening (will need to see if I can do such a thing over the cafe speakers, while avoiding feedback from using the mic), as well as me stretching my non-existing design chops to produce some memorabilia. I’ll talk more about this in a week or so. Also, please take note that it will be held on May 9, which is the second Monday of the month, following Golden Week (I always avoid having a PauseTalk during holidays).
