Gino Yu came to visit

Gino Yu came to visit Tokyo. Currently Gino is a professor at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He was kind enough to accept our invitation, at a very short notice, to give a lecture at a class room at Meiji University, which was arranged by Prof. Masato Goda.

I came to know Gino when I visited Hong Kong for a conference. His personality fascinated me immediately.
He talks with such gaiety that sunshine seems to emanate from him. Gino is a "natural" in grasping what are salient and finding deep connections between things. Listening to his ideas is a delight for the soul.

I was glad that my students were exposed to his good influence. When you give a talk, the manner is as important as the content. A dull speaker bores the audience not necessarily because of poor ingredients but often due to a bad attitude.

Had a fun time afterwards in a Izakaya near the university.

Many thanks for your time and inspirations, Gino.

My good old science teacher from high school who introduced me to the books by Mogi sensei a few yeas ago, has recently given me the information about the lecture by Randy Pausch, who was a professor at Carnegie Mellon university. You can easily find his lecture by inputting "the last lecture", "Randy Pausch" to watch his lecture on you tube. I just wanted to borrow this opportunity to introduce him to the readers of this journal. Please take time to listen to him and be prepared to take perhaps more time after you have listened what he has delivered us throuth his lecture.

Searching for Professor Gino Yu in our campus may be one of my agendas for action in 2010 ...

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes less expensive, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
