The Asian Wall Street Journal has launched a Japan group blog Japan Real Time. Go for a visit by clicking the link on the left.
The timing of Japan Real Time's launch is somewhat interesting, as rival media giant Reuters seems to be losing interest in the blogging format. The stand-alone site Raw Japan has been abandoned in favor of a Japan page in the Reuters Global News Journal. The pace of contributions since the switchover - only 2 posts in the last 5 weeks -- indicates a possible lack of faith in the format.
Good luck to the folks at the ASWJ with their new venture.
