CGM Night 5 was held recently at the KDDI web communications head office in Tokyo. It was my first time to attend and thanks to Danny Choo and Andrew Shuttleworth, it was a very enjoyable night.
I am a bit late in writing this, but can definitely say that late does not mean ‘bad’. The event was very entertaining as you can probably tell by the photos, and it was also a perfect way to network with people who you don’t normally get a chance to meet face to face.
There was no particular agenda at the CGM Night, and this allowed people to mingle and find conversations around the room. I met a number of interesting people, including a group from Google who were in Tokyo as part of their internal Google career path program.
There was also a number of giveaways and prizes to be won, including these Firefox stickers and face towel.
Interesting guests included a number of idols. The two below are Amano Ai and Mayu-chan from Cutie Pie. They are probably going to be performing at the next CGM Night, which is already being organized at another great top secret venue.
Kind thanks to use of photos from Danny. You can see all of Danny’s photos from the CGM Night and his post on the events at Dannychoo.com
Andrew and Danny always put on a good event for CGM Night. Bringing people together so they can network sounds like an easy task, but a gathering of so many people in one location is tough. Thanks to both of you.

If you haven’t been to a CGM Night before and live near the Tokyo area, I would encourage you to come along. If you can’t attend then don’t forget you can follow along on Twitter with live tweets and you can see photos on flickr tagged with cgmnight.
