As one can probably guess Humus cannot be found easily in Japan.
So, I had no choice but to prepare my own. Found receipts in Israeli websites, decided on two which looked good and combined them into one.
Humus – Bought from Basement of Takashimaya Futako Tamagawa – 500gr
Tehina – A Japanese version of tehina which is sweeter. Note to self, bring more Tehina from Israel.
In water for more than 12 hours:
That’s it. HMV Shibuya closed.

Posters around my neighborhood (Kawasaki, Japan) announce a “Whale Festival”, goals are :

Not sure what to do about this, but at least I have put it on the web.

One can speculate if this means that Intel is cutting WiMAX investments, or just that WiMAX adoption among Taiwanese ODMs is good enough.
PCworld which also includes a link to speculations.
My opinion: Cutting down WiMAX investment.
UQ Wimax just announced a new business campaign.
More details are
here (PDF, JP), but my guess it will be as “successful” as previous campaigns.
Visited Ulsan, Korea for
KSCA (Korean Supercomputing Center Alliance) workshop.
Was quite impressed with UNIST building and environment. Recently opened,
UNIST is trying to Foster Elites in Science and Technical Fields . Even more interesting is, that ALL lectures are planned to be given in English.

This is not a first, but I experienced it myself last night.
As I was attending last night’s
Geeks on a Plane event, the adjoining space was being used to shoot a Promotional Video (PV) for an unknown (didn’t ask their name) band.
3 DSLR cameras were being used with different lenses (from wide angle to Zoom).
Here are the Photos:
And a Video:
HMV Shibuya posted a sign notifying customers that the shop will close in August.
In the past few months HMV already gave up the top floor for a guitar shop, but the end came faster than expected.

Open Network Lab is a new incubation lab for Internet based Startups.
I joined last week’s meeting with Ryan Holmes, HootSuite CEO and Japanese Shinnichi Fujikawa, founder of Movatwi.
Open Network Lab goal is to encourage innovation and Internet based Start-Ups, which may explain the 40 minutes long panel on “How Engineers can start Companies”.
HootSuite recently launched a Japanese version of their service,with the aid of
Digital Garage which is heavily invested in the Twitter phenomena and related tools/services.
To me it seems Open Network Lab is the right tool for the current economic and social situation in Japan. In the past few months I have met many Engineers, Innovators excited to start their own companies, but fail in two things:
How to market their services to the mass market
How to go Global
