A little about myself.

I also contribute articles to IT magazines about Open Source Software as a core member of Japan Apache Users Group. I've been in computer related fields from 1978. starting in college, nuclear physics major, I had to take a class in FORTRAN and that was it, I was hooked on the machines. I started working first as an application programmar at a system development
company. Then moved on to a system integration company, and specializing in data communication, small & mid size systems. I run a small intranet at home, a router, Windows Servers, Windows Desktops and CentOS Linux . The Linux runs DNS, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and POP3 making it nice for software testing and development.

Akihabara's new trend "Street Computing Gang"

Have you ever been to Akihabara? Akihabara is located in Tokyo City Center, and one of the most well-known area as a mecca for subculture in Japan or all over the world.

You can see many "Rojo PasoCon Zoku" or Street Computing Gangs there lately. In Japan, you can use Internet by wireless network anytime anywhere at a flat rate for  $50 or less.

As you know, young people really love Internet. I guess they in the below picture are chatting together over internet. They like talking over Internet better than face-to-face's. They must have a smart phone, but they like laptop better because they need full qwerty keyboard and wide screen.

Do you think what they are in the below picture doing? Akihabara is very crowded, and they couldn't find the room to use Internet, or couldn't wait for. They are really addicted Internet. They say Street Computing Gangs are increasing day by day.
