ABSTRACT
The article features Kenji Kasahara, founder of social networking site (SNS) Mixi. When Kasahara listed Mixi, it became Japan's third most visited Web site. When Mixi began trading on Tokyo's Mothers Market for small high-growth stocks, its shares immediately jumped to twice the offering price, valuing the company at $1.7 billion. Ten months later News Corp.'s MySpace is trying to steal his business, and Mixi's share of Internet traffic has slipped.
