Today is the Star Festival. You either get this image or you don't. My wife stared at it for five seconds before laughing out loud.

So... I should be thrilled because we really live in a cyberpunk future where "the side-walk trashcan had a kernel panic" is a perfectly normal, literally true sentence?

Or disgusted because the trashcan was only computerized and connected in order to shove even more ads down my throat in the first place?

It seems the influx of tourists is starting to ruin the Shinsaibashi shopping street. The usual shops are gradually being replaced by tax-free stores; this weekend one music instrument store and a good sushi place have both disappeared.

The problem is that the tourists don't come here specifically to buy cheaper aspirin or watches in the first place - they can get that anywhere from the airport onwards. They come to a place like Shinsaibashi or the Kuromon market to experience all the usual shops selling all kinds of stuff.

If that all disappears, then so does the reason the tourists come here in the first place. Then the tourists disappear, but the locals don't come back - they're not interested in the touristy things and have long since found other places to shop. The end result will be a dying street. Kokusai street in Naha is a good example of that.

Birthday dinner at Lawry's in Umeda. Also, why I haven't blogged much lately.
It was my birthday yesterday, and true to form we took the chance to go out to eat. This time we headed to a place called "Lawry's", an American steak chain in Umeda. It was quite good, especially the main dish, a cut of rib roast with mashed potato, stewed spinach and creamed corn.

Haven't heard of this British maker before. This model is pretty reasonably priced, considering what you get. Anybody with experience of them?

+Jan Moren​, it's pretty much the same situation with my T430. So far, the most suitable replacement for me seems to be a T450, but this time without NVidia graphics.

My least favorite topic in the world is 'Women in Tech', so I am going to make this short but I think it's something that needs to be said.

Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs is available in Japanese! Now you can learn the serious fundamentals of programming, along with Scheme - the worlds most popular obscure programming language.

It's all open licensed, with LatTeX sources for everything. And there's even one version with the English and Japanese interleaved, which should make it valuable for learning terminology: https://github.com/minghai/sicp-pdf/blob/japanese/ejsicp.pdf
 
Japanese version of SICP.

>> This is a PDF version of "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" by Harold Abelson, Gerald Jay Sussman, and Julie Sussman. It is a further development of the Unofficial Texinfo Format (UTF), which was originally derived from the HTML version at The MIT Press. <<

Make instant ramen a little better for lunch.
In an ideal world we'd leave our offices around midday and sit down for a leisury two-hour meal with our families. A few hours of slow home-cooked food and brisk conversation to clear our minds before we stroll back to work for the afternoon. For most of us that ideal world does not exist.

Janne. In Osaka.
Introduction
From Sweden, but I've been living in Osaka for nine years. I've worked in cognitive science, neuroscience and robotics.

I am affiliated with Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, but placed at the RIKEN Advanced Institute of Computing Science in Kobe, where I work on a project to model the subcortical motor-related areas in order to better understand the physiological effects of Parkinsons disease.

Spent a summer in grad school building a trebuchet instead of doing any actual work.

Very good Thai restaurant, less adapted to Japanese taste than most. The seating is not terribly comfortable, though, and the bathroom is Japanese style only.

Good, solid chain cafe. Second floor is open and spacious with lots of small tables. Usually not crowded, so it's a good spot for working or studying.

My favourite omuraisu restaurant. The place is in a slightly seedy part of Namba, south of Amemura on the "wrong" side of Midosuji avenue, but the restaurant itself has a very calm, pleasant and slightly old-fashioned vibe that feels more high-class than you'd expect from an omuraisu place. Plenty of tourists; on one hand you won't feel out of place as a visitor (and there's English menus available too), but on the other, you are as likely to rub shoulders with a fellow tourist as with a local. Some people dislike it, others are comforted by it of course. The omuraisu itself is very, very good. I've had several varieties and they've all been tasty. I especially like the mushroom-sauce variants. Plenty of food, but there's set meals and a fair assortment of side dishes to pick from as well if you want (fried shrimp always goes well).

Pleasant ramen place with traditional decor but a modern take on the food. The soup is very thick with more than a hint of sweetness. The noodles are pleasantly chewy. Japanese-style toilet.

Good vietnamese food. The lunches, especially, are well worth it. The basement in an old building can feel just a little like a dining hall at times, but the cool and dim atmosphere is very welcome on hot summer days.
