Meiji Shrine Pic

June 12th, 2005

Just a little pic here. I know that I’ve been low on photos as of late (as one commenter gently hinted), but rainy season is here and there have been a lot more rainy weekends than not. Right now we’re in the midst of Typhoon #4, and there are a lot of numbers left. So hang tight, and here’s a sliver shot of Meiji Shrine taken in recent better weather, with a 1280-pixel-wide version available on click.

    It looks so peaceful :)

    I imagine you’ve had time to visit many of the shrines since you’ve been living there. Do you have any favorites, or maybe a top 10 that you would recommend visiting?

    Luis: Scope out this post from I Cringely, the technology pundit for pbs at: http://www.pbs.org/cringely/

    I am not a techy, though I was a systems analyst designing primarily manufacturing systems (materials management) for nearly 20 years. I read one tech consultant. I also have a brother who is an uber-techy who works for intel (right now he’s in Malaysia teaching classes). I have quite a few techy friends. Most are not savvy in a street or business sense. I make a point to read one tech pundit regularly just to keep a toe hold on developments and not become totally illiterate. For the last few years Cringely has been the pundit for me.

    He’s tech competant, business savy, tactical and strategical thinker and he’s got good communications skills and hes a creative thinker about whats going on. He’s also got a sense of humor and he’s not affraid to take a guess at what goes on. Which I think is why he works for me. His guesses cause me to think about things in an equally creative way.

    All that said he has some interesting things to say about Apple-Tel arrangement. He sees it as a merger (of sorts) and its pretty interesting to see why. He sees it as Intel and Jobs moving to unseat Gates/Microsoft as the drivers of the pc/tech world.

    If so, this game has just entering into a new and interesting phase.

    Now I wonder. I recently bought a new lap top. And I almost bought an Apple. I wanted it because I am more creative and less techy. But I am not working now, and have no income. None. I am studying for the Bar, but it will be six months, at best before I am gainfully employed (my guess). So I bought a Wintel machine that my software could port to. I did not want to buy the cheapest apple lap top, which is where I would have to go. I hope to buy a new one. And like you I want the current technology, not the future technology. I want protection from virus’s and the like. I think the current technology having a sunset makes this an even safer environment than before.

    Anyway I hope you take a look at Cringley’s post and I’d like to hear your read on these things. If you have anything interesting to comment, you can either email it to me at my email address above, or post more comments here at some future time.
