I thought this was not this soon. Anyway, we'll have another
reikai on Aug. 30. I should setup the reikai registration page.

As you may or may not know, there is a Perl/Ruby Conference in
November this year at Kyoto. I'm thinking whether I should move
YAPC a few months later or not. As for Japanese mail, try
getting a free webmail account (and a Japanese-capable browser).
Simon> I've also been thinking recently about the Perl Journal Japan

Yes, I know the project. Actually, I subscribed to the
mailing-list. TPJ has now so much contents that volunteer-based
translation is not practical. (Unless you succeed to get
Kansai.pm people deeply involved.) If some publisher would pay
translators and publish Japan version of TPJ, it might be
successful (I hope it would have from-Japan articles). O'Reilly
Japan staffs are once interested. Should I tell this idea to
other publishers to make a competition? :P
I personally think we might be able to digest TPJ articles.
What I really want to do is to encourage Japanese to read
English documents, instead of to translate.

Having you in our community is a great pleasure. Keep in touch!
