7th Ludwig Boltzmann Forum Tokyo 2015

One highlight of this year’s 7th Ludwig Boltzmann Forum was when Nobel Prize Winner Shuji Nakamura who’s invention of GaN LEDs eliminates the need to build thirty 1GW class nuclear power stations in the USA alone by 2030, asked the world’s most experienced nuclear power station operators and regulators, Chuck Casto, which source of energy he thought was best for Japan. Read Chuck Casto’s answer here.

it isnt about revolution but about driving adoption. Apple is great in that - no one else is. Wireless payment methods are there for a long time - visa paywave etc - but they didnt get adopted.

visa could have offered a wallet to its paywave, online receipts, etc. but it couldnt, so you need someone to push this global. Japanese companies werent equally able to setup a global ecosystem.

Love this!  Working on my muscles to support my knees better. Finally got my bike home from California.  That should be a good start.
