I read an article a couple of years ago in which a Japanese executive explained why he thought software engineering wasn’t popular in Japan. “A samurai would never write software,” he said. The idea was that Monozukuri, or the proud Japanese tradition of making things, wasn’t as relevant when it came to creating relative intangibles like software and services.

Japan’s math and science curriculum is the envy of the world, but it suffers from a shortage of high-skill young computer science professionals. The truth is, you can’t produce great hardware without great software. And you can’t produce great software without great programmers.

So I’m proud to be in Tokyo today to announce that we’re donating 5,000 Raspberry Pi to reach out to 25,000 students—and partnering with CANVAS to help teachers teach their students using the credit-card-sized mini-PC.

I believe I've shared this once before, but can't find it so you get to delight in it once more. From the inimitable Matthew Inman: http://goo.gl/EqmKO

While @hotmail is dead, it is now outlook.com (and at least for me) served on a bay175.mail.live.com/mail, it is unclear what to think of outlook as a brand. It reminds me of Outlook the software, which I equate to non-cloud old thinking and hence back to, for now, the same type of brand impression as @hotmail.

PS: I wonder if there is a category for "own domain but based on the Google Apps stack." I would be in that one. :)

Google's "Levity Algorithm" -- a must have for all businesses. 
 
You know the drill. Dreary two hour meetings you can’t wait to escape. Emails that go on forever without getting to the point. Another invite to a meeting with no clear purpose. Today we're introducing the Levity Algorithm in Google Apps to help you spice up even the most boring of work days.
