Please forgive me once again for yet another late installation of A Week in Tokyo. Since we last spoke, had a trip to the UK, France, Malaysia and came back to Japan to start work on producing a TV show called Culture:Japan and soon its off on the plane again to LA. Made the decision to decline the interviews, appearances, publication offers and have also scaled back on web production but for some reason there still does not seem to be any more free time to work on the products that I want to work on ToT.
The TV production should be over in the next 2 weeks and I got a meeting scheduled with Obitsu this Friday so hopefully should be able to gain traction with my own products.
This snap taken after I got back from Malaysia - tis the entrance to Ueno station.
People from time to time fall into the tracks and happens a lot during the evenings when folks start to get drunk. This poster calls out to folks to press the emergency button if you spot somebody falling in.
Reminds me of some terrible accident from a few years back when a drunk salary man fell into the tracks. A guy jumped into save the salary man and succeeded by pushing him up onto the platform but he himself could not get out of the tracks in time and got killed by the on coming train. The hero was named on the news but the salary man remained anonymous.
Picking up some food tickets at the machine. Many stores have you pay for food at these machines first. This means that the staff don't need to worry about collecting money and time is saved because the customer deals with the money exchange by themselves. Do they have this sort of system in your neck of the woods?
Afternoon tea time.
Chris setting up my development environment. We use a single Ubuntu parallels image which is configured with Nginx, Mysql, PHP and wot not. This means the dev environments of our developers can be set up in a very short time.
While we may be scaling down on new clients, we still got a load to do with our current sites.
Feels much more productive with this layout. Looks like I will be implementing use of the iPad into my work flow more effectively now that its jailbroken - can browse folders over USB through finder for fast copying of files which all play through GoodReader - will give you the steps on how to do this in a separate post.
