I’m amazed at how technologically advanced and efficient that Japan is. I’m on board a bullet train going way over 100 MPH headed to Kyoto, it’s very very quiet. When other trains pass by, you can feel the sheer wind force, the trains slightly rock back and forth.I’ll show you some of the facilities. Star Trek like automatic doors, everything is recycled. Many folks enjoy meals on board the train, it’s an great opportunity to relax, catch up on some work, or just recline and kick back.
Did you know that Hitachi makes bullet trains? (I’m not sure if I was on one) Escalators, tractors, chips, servers, data storage, camcorders, nuclear powerplants too, I see a lot of Hitachi products and signs everywhere in Japan, it’s a huge company. Did ya know there are about 300,000 employees globally? Google sports a mere 10k and Microsoft 100k ish. GE is the United States largest company with about the same headcount. As far as I can tell, at Hitachi Data Systems, we were the first to blog in English, I suspect blogging has been native to Japan for a long time however.
And yeah, I’m sportin my Podtech tshirt.
