Japanese mentality is similar to hidden Trump supporters?






I had an occasion to witness the similarity to Japanese mentality and hidden Trump supporters mentality. Japanese who don’t speak out When Japanese people are having some business and political relationship problem, they don’t really speak out they’re having problem. It’s very rare that they speak out. When they speak out to the public, it’s usually too late. (The problem usually becomes big problem). If you’re a leader in Japan, you need to be able to catch the problem and solve it before it becomes ‘public‘. If you cannot catch the problem before it becomes public, the leaders are responsible. Japanese have a custom to respect others. Usually, Japanese don’t want to look […]





Communication gap






Making film, designing a web site, translating text, It’s all about communication. I am very fortunate to have my profession. I love interacting people and get the information across the world. But sometime, I often struggle when my opinion don’t get crossed to other people. I struggled that I have hard time understanding other people, or accept other people’s opinion. Miss-communication, and misunderstanding are often resulted in the catastrophe. How much I understand myself. How much I can express my opinion to the others. Did I explain stuff clearly? Didn’t I mention the purpose of the conversation. Was the timing of the conversation right? I now have a wife and […]





W3Tech says Usage of concrete5 grows by more than 40% per year






Just found an article from W3Tech, the reputable market research company for content management system that “Usage of Concrete5 grows by more than 40% per year” from Web technology fact of the day on August 8, 2014 It’s nice to see that concrete5 is growing all over the world.





Happy New Year 2014






Happy new year. The holiday greetings of the Year 2014. In 2013, I went through a lot in terms of private life and work. I’m hoping that I can bring my last year’s experience to the next level. I wish I could write more blog post this year… but the frequent blog posts will be the resolution after 2015.





New design!






I just installed the new theme for my blog. I hope you like it. Although concrete5 is much superior in theme design whereas WordPress is very hard to design a theme, WordPress is still the key player of CMS, especially as a blog platform. It’s very good as maintaining a number of simple title-and-text contents.





Moving to WordPress






I just finished moving both of my Japanese blog to my own domain, katzueno.com. I’m using WordPress for my new blog although I’m a Japanese developer of concrete5 CMS. Every software has its advantage, like Mac and Windows. Some poor people say that Mac is better than Windows, Windows is better than Mac or Linux is better then the rest. The fact: The smart people can use them all :p Anyway, I can use concrete5 but I also want to take advantage of WordPress and learn from it.
