Sankei + Land Rush Group + The Japan Times


I’m excited to announce our new e-learning partnership with Sankei
Shimbun one of Japan’s five national newspapers. This partnership
brings together amazing content from The Japan Times (our strategic
partner) with the marketing leverage of one of Japan’s leading
Internet news portals.

One of the reasons I’m really excited about working with Sankei is
that even though it’s a very traditional Japanese media company,
Sankei Digital really has some progressive ideas on the future of
online media. This is obvious from Sankei’s partnership with MSN Japan
in 2007 that has been very successful.

Everyone on my team has worked very hard on this and the deal could
not have been done without all of them. Thanks!

While I’ve been mostly offline preparing for the launch, a friend
joked that he knew something big was coming up since I pretty much
stopped tweeting!

I’m proud to have another partner who really understands the
importance of digital business in the future of media and look forward
to announcing more partnerships in the near future.

    very interesting- I’ve been hoping for sometime now that the papers here in Japan would see the writing on the wall and get with the times. I’d like to see our local Chunichi Shimbun go the same route, but perhaps I need to wait another 2-3 years…
