Today, LinkedIn officially set up shop in Hong Kong. They were kind enough to invite me to attend as "media" and I reciprocated by posting salient points from their speeches on Twitter (@webwednesday). See the screen cap below.

Calling all online bargain hunters!
As cross-border social commerce becomes the rage, we've invited Joanne Ooi, Founder of Plukka.com, to take the hot seat at this month's Web Wednesday Social Mixer on
TechCrunch version, "Plukka is social shopping with a group buying twist — more jewelry buyers means a lower price for everyone".
Watch this "how does it work?" video to understand the value of group shopping via Plukka:
Sign up and spread the word via Facebook.
As per usual, there's a HK$100 entrance fee, which includes one complimentary drink, an enlightening talk, high-quality networking and the chance to win lucky draw prizes.
Our lovely assistant, Vivian, will issue a receipt if you need one. (For students, you can get in for HK$50 without free booze). Thereafter, all standard drinks will be charged at special happy hour prices.
Do spread the word as we may have some great jewelry to give away, if we can twist Joanne's arm. If not, you'll still meet some great people and learn how to start an internet business in Hong Kong selling primarily to the United States.
