Kenji Kasahara, founder of Mixi

Mixi is the biggest social networking site (SNS) in Japan with more than 10 million users and a firm grip on popular culture. Founder Kenji Kasahara started up his first company when he still was a student at Tokyo University and later set up Mixi in 2004. Although it exploded into a company which recently listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, he remains low-key about his staggering success at a young age. Talk Asia follows him at work, discussing his impact on Japanese culture and vision for the future of the Internet, before taking him back to his roots at Tokyo University's world-famous business school.
