Minor correction—this is the Newsweek International (Asia) edition, not the Japan edition. The Japan edition came out on 13th September featuring the same cover photograph with the headline "移民国家ニッポン 出稼ぎではなく「永住」へ外国人が日本を変える" and a translation of the article inside.

Thanks for fixing! I have a print copy of the Japanese (and a scan of the cover) but don't think I have a digital version of the article. The one quote they actually credited to me was so poorly translated I wasn't honestly that enthusiastic about keeping it. I'll have a look though.

New expression of the day:

"... as ineffective as a Google date parsing algorithm."

Seriously, I have never ever been able to get Google to understand a date in any format when performing a search. I was able to write a more effective parser in QBasic back in 1991. It took about 15 minutes.

Why oh why does the Google+ app for iPhone notify me every single time it auto-uploads photos in the background. The whole purpose of it is that it's an unsupervised task. When I start to routinely ignore the notification indicator, it no longer serves any purpose.

Google Drive application can't get past my company's firewall. Dropbox doesn't seem to have any problem though.

Both work for me. But we use google stuff at work anyway, so it was logical that this is open.

Storage on Google is going from $5.00 per year for 20GB to $2.50 per MONTH for 25GB. That's a price increase of nearly 500%. How does that constitute value?!

They may have got the 18 month figure from me, as that's how long the whole process did take. As you say though, that included the time it took to gather paperwork, and just getting the renunciation paperwork stamped and returned to me took seven months. I would include these as part of the "whole process" so I don't think it's necessarily incorrect, but it would be better if they could clarify that to avoid confusion.

+Eido INOUE Yeah, "how long it took me" and "how long it took" are very different things, and it's not always obvious which was meant.

I always felt something was missing from this photo.

Oh, THIS is handy. The iPhone 4s video is not restricted to 4GB or 30 minutes. The catch though is the somewhat arbitrary framerate – one I took outside earlier was 29.95 fps, and an indoor one was 29.97, another indoor one at around 23.95 etc.

A couple more shots from a better camera for comparison.

Story
Introduction
I suspect there aren't that many people around with the same name as me. You've probably found the right person, but for the wrong reasons. This is a test account associated with an old gmail. I'll set up a proper account when G+ goes live and can be associated with Apps accounts. :-)
