...I was skeptical at first, when I was invited to join the Japanese OTP translator meetup via Google Hangout. ... ., and I got a lot out of "hanging out" with fellow OTP members. Thanks everyone! (Akiko)

...I kind of start to hear what they would sound like when they write to me via email or post. I hope this meetup will help us try to discuss issues openly and friendly manner... (Akinori)

...6 hours, which sounded forever before the meeting, passed very quickly and left me with a very nice memory. (Name1)
