I found an interesting podcast today:

It's about how the usage of "so" in English is changing. I often use the form they're talking about. In the second half of the podcast they say that computer programmers talk like that a lot, so maybe that's why.

(I want to use "so" like this in Japanese, but there's not a good equivalent, is there? :( )

[Not from above, but since a summary of the podcast might be useful and my Japanese is not clear enough to explain:
In the last few years, many people have started using "So" at the beginning of sentences to introduce a new topic, which is unusual. At the same time, they started using "so..." to end a sentence, to let the user draw their own conclusion. The podcast talks about why that might be.]
