いやー、アメリカの人はダイナミックです。うちでバーベキューすることになり、「肉持ってくる」と言った人がまさか牛の舌を丸ごと持ってくるとは思わなかった。巨大!牛タンを丸ごとさばくの初めて見た (@@)

ルームメイトのアランが一ヶ月前にうちに引っ越してきた時にバーベキューセットを持ち込んでいたようで、せっかくだからバーベキューをしようということになり、アランの友達が肉を持ってくるという。普通のお肉だと思っていたら牛の舌をまるごと持ってきたので非常にびっくりした。 日本ではスライスして塩コショウし ...

Wrote a blog post about "Ondine at Sutro Baths by We Players"- definitely recommend if you love unique experiences! 

For those of you who don't know: We Players is a performing arts non-profit that produces plays that is one of a kind.

They perform plays not in theaters but in amazing places. For example they've done Hamlet on Alcatraz, The Odyssey on Angel Island, Macbeth at Fort Point. They don't perform on stages, but in those places outside- they would walk around various locations during the play, and the audience has to follow them around while they change the venues. The distance between the performers and the audience is so close- I've actually had Ondine stand right next to me during the play. It was such an interesting and exciting experience :)

Free calls to loved ones in Nepal

You can now call friends and loved ones in Nepal for free from most places around the world, using Google Voice, the Hangouts Dialer on an Android phone, your computer using Hangouts or from Gmail if you’re using Google Talk. We are working hard to ensure that spammers do not abuse this offer and stress Nepal's infrastructure, and will be monitoring closely, but wanted to make calls to those affected as easy as possible.

Already, people in Nepal with a data connection can use Hangouts or Gmail to call phones in the U.S. and Canada for free, while calls to India are 1 cent per minute. Voice or video calls between Google accounts are always free. Please note that telecom infrastructure has been impacted in the country, so lines may be busy or unavailable at times.

Person Finder is available, we've been continuously updating satellite imagery, and looking at ways to help. Details below:

Story
Introduction

I am a program manager at Social Impact team at Google, focused on Civic Innovation and Crisis Response. Social Impact is a team within Google that builds products to improve people’s lives by building and enabling disruptive technology that reinvents the way society addresses our shared challenges.

I started my career working at Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT)- the largest telecom in Japan for 7 years and moved to Interscope - an Internet marketing research company, then joined Digital Garage which Joichi Ito cofounded where I worked on localization of blog search engine Technorati to Technorati Japan, helped Creative Commons Japan and iCommons, invested as VC (DG Incubation) and helped startups and organized conferences such as New Context Conference and iCommons Summit. I joined Google after freelancing as a traveler, researcher, consultant and a journalist.

I am currently a fellow of Creative Commons Japan, and fellow at International University of Japan, Center for Global Communications (Glocom). I initiated various projects including Hack For Japan (an initiative to use technology for Japan to recover from 311 disaster) Tohoku Tech Dojo (an initiative to help youngsters in Tohoku learn how to code, to cultivate new industry in the area to recover from 311 disaster), and Fukko Hangout (an initiative to help people in Tohoku to convey their message directly using the Internet).

Prior to joining current team, I was Google's Developer Relations Japan country lead for 3 years before moving to US as Developer Advocate of Project OPEN at Developer Relations Team.
